Recipe Notes

How to store homemade caramel sauce:

I store mine in a mason jar with a lid and in a fridge. I found that it stays good up to 1 month. To serve place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time until warmed throughout.

Crystallized Caramel:

Caramel can crystallize easily which is why I said I like to blend mine. If you find it crystallizing in the fridge then reheat it on the stovetop with about 1/4 cup of water until the crystals are dissolved.
