  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup salted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup 35% whipping cream at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp Windsor Kosher Salt


  1. In a large sauce pan add sugar and heat over medium heat. Stir sugar constantly with a large wooden spoon making sure to scrape the bottom and the sides to prevent burning. Stir until sugar is fully dissolved and has turned the colour of amber. Continue stirring and add butter. Since the butter is cooler than the sugar it will bubble and may splash - be careful - mixture is extremely hot!
  2. Once butter has fully mixed slowly poor in cream and stir and/or whisk until all of the cream has incorporated. Allow to boil briefly then remove from heat. Stir in salt and cool to room temperature.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or at room temperature for two days. Warm up the sauce before serving.
