Last year around Christmas, I decided that I was going to make a dessert that called for Caramel. Thinking that it was going to be as easy as microwaving pizza, I attempted to make my own batch. Yeah, that unplanned plan turned out to be a flop. I burned the first and second batches and the third turned out to be the consistency of large rocks. The next logical step was to make a scene in front of my husband which might or might not have involved tears and I desperately begged him to fix it for me (even though he had never attempted to make caramel). He got it right the first time. At that moment I vowed to never ever try that recipe again.

Yesterday, I made Guinnness Cupcakes and wanted to drizzle them with caramel. I looked at a lot of recipes but this one was the one that made most sense to me. It turned out great! It also tastes just like Werther’s Original.

Flour of Salt haha :D My french still needs some work but I love caramel.. And from what I understood really is that this caramel has salt in it? Intersting... :P

Yep, it's a salty caramel.
Fleur = flower. Fleur de Sel is a kind of sea salt: [link]

it's a wet salt is what my french chef would say :) it's only something to put on for finishing touches :D Fleur de Sel would be great for fish and other meats but I think Sel gris would be best for something such as.. pre-sale lamb :D

Wet salt? strange..
I have seen lots of chefs use Fleur de Sel on on sweets. :)

well that's what our chef's say around here :) should be slightly wet. If not, then it's not fleur de sel :D and I wanna taste a fusion of something sweet and salty (not popcorn)

so.. my dry jar of fleur de sel is not real? according to your chef?

it's what he told me actually.. Because I've seen pictures of his fleur de sel and it looks clumped up and wet. And all of the fleur de sel he posted that day all looked wet O.O

I understand, but it does dry when it's not in the sea anymore. LOL!
plus, all of the cooking shows I watch that use fleur de sel use it when it's dry. No matter :)
