I’ve made caramels twice before this, and this might just be my favorite. The golden syrup gives it a hint of smoky flavor that’s quite enchanting. Remind me again what this recipe is called? Because I completely forgot to add the vanilla. But guess what, the caramels still tasted awesome!

Yesterday, there was an island. It was 10 meters away and beautiful with gradated black sand and trees silhouetted against the hazy purple sky. I wanted to go to that island so badly, a poor decision was made in haste and I fell off a slippery rock. It’s harder to bake now hopping on one good leg, and the 15-minute walk to purchase ingredients like 3kg bags of sugar and 2kg blocks of butter is dauntingly difficult. Some people find caramel making scary, I am not one of them. Trust you nose and eyes and use a light bottomed pan.
