Time 5


  • 0
    250ml castor sugar
  • 0
    250ml water


Place the castor sugar in the water and on a LOW heat stir slowly, taking care not to let the sugar water go up the sides of the pan.
MAKE SURE that the sugar is properly dissolved, otherwise you will get crystallised sugar and will have to start again.
With a brush dipped in water, brush the sides of the pan above the water line to prevent crystals from forming.
You can turn up the heat at this point.
After about 10-15 mins it will start to turn to a caramel colour, watch it carefully as it will burn quickly.
When it is a dark golden colour, remove from the heat and place the base of the pot into cool water to slow the cooking of it and prevent burning.
