i've always been sorta scared with sugar. cooking with it.
i think i saw my parent's friend Mrs Thompson, burn herself making peanut brittle..and it scarred her literally, and me mentally. i think i was six.
i watch my friend Tina make caramel sauce and it looks scary. like napalm.
today, i took a swing at it. i have some vanilla ice cream, and it needs caramel sauce...i used a big pot and a long whisk..and yes, i had welding gloves on. feeling triumphant..i even put a couple cans of sweetened condense milk into simmering water for several hours..in about 9 minutes, i hit the four hour mark and i will pull them. tomorrow? dulce de leche!!
