A few days into the new year, I polished off a gift of maple caramels. I made them last as long as I could, which wasn't nearly long enough. I couldn't get them out of my mind, so I bought a few packets of pre-cut candy wrapping papers and waited for cream to go on sale.
Last week during my weekly grocery shopping I came across a pint of organic heavy cream on sale for $2.99, and I was off to the races. Well, I was off to the stove, armed with a heavy copper saucepan and a good candy thermometer. I made a pound of caramels. I wonder how long they'll last.
