Did you know that with one single ingredient, you can produce golden, utterly delicious caramel in your slow cooker? Despite this revelation, I have very mixed feelings about this recipe. On the one hand, I now make a lot of caramel. On the other hand, I now make a lot of caramel. See my problem? There's hardly anything that I'm not dipping, stirring or combining in some way with fresh golden caramel. Gah, what am I saying? This isn't a problem. Hang the guilt and pass a bigger spoon!
If you make the caramel in attractive jars, you could even add a fabric cover and nice label and give a few jars away as gifts. It's a really rewarding process making the caramel; true kitchen alchemy in action!
