For the caramel sauce

  1. Measure out the cream and set aside
  2. Whisk together the sugar and water in a heavy bottomed pot before you put the heat on
  3. Once combined turn the heat to medium and DO NOT STIR IT WITH ANY KITCHEN UTENSIL, instead make little swirl motions occasionally until it starts to boil
  4. After about five minutes on the heat the colour should start to turn amber, watch this step carefully and do not leave it as it will catch quickly
  5. When you have a decent caramel colour take it off the heat and slowly add the cream and whisk at the same time, the mixture will splutter
  6. Add the butter and half the amount of salt and stir
  7. Test the saltiness and adjust bit by bit until you have the perfect salty sweet balance
