Today was supposed to be a beautiful post about how I made sea salt caramel candy for my family and friends for Christmas. What it actually is is a post about how we tried to make sea salt caramel candy, didn’t get it hot enough, and now it’s in a blob on the counter and won’t quite hold a shape well enough to cut and wrap. Waahhhh!
S.O.S., kitchen mavens! Who’s got a brilliant idea? I know that we didn’t quite get the caramel hot enough to get to “firm ball” stage. It’s more like a soft ball. Should we scrap it and start over? Should we change directions and use the soft caramel for something else? I’m sure you know my frustration — that icky feeling that you get when you’re in the middle of a project that has just gone absolutely wrong.
In any case, if any of you wonderful Lovelies has any advice, ideas, or just wants to commiserate about domesticity gone awry, I would love to hear your comments! And aside from this little candy-making debacle, you’ll be happy to know that the rest of my week is going pretty great. xoxo
