Note this can be really finnicky. Event small things being off, from the pan to the sugar solution, can cause your caramel to not form. I suggest referencing Bon App’s recipe which includes Cream of Tartar. This prevents crystallization of the caramel which can lead to the caramel never actually forming.
My friends still like to recount the time I tried to make this sauce only to end up standing at the stove for around an hour stirring a pot of melting sugar that kept crystalizing without browning as I continued to try and redissolve it over and over.
Tyler, I love your comics! I’ve read every one so far, and have your book. (Looking forward to another!) I just wanted you to know that unlike the POS-POTUS, Dog S–t is actually useful for something. Maybe only as yard fertilizer, but hey, at least it’s good for one thing.
