Solomon Recipes

I started this blog so I could pass along family recipes to my children. Most of these recipes are Eaton recipes.

But, no need to share the last name Solomon. The majority of the recipes are made by me, Mother Goose, my Sister in law, Gretchen and two friends Leta and HK. If you would like to be a contributor, just holla!

Cream Caramels

Another holiday favorite candy.

Cream Caramels

2 cups sugar

3/4 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup butter

2 cups half & half

Butter a square pan 8X8".

Combine sugar, corn syrup butter and 1 cup of half & half in a large, heavy saucepan. Heat to boiling over a medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining cup of half & half.

Cook over medium heat (at a rapid simmer) stirring occasionally, to 245 F on a candy thermometer. (You will want to watch it closely after it reaches about 215 F and stir in frequently as it nears the 245 F point to prevent scorching.)

Pour into the prepared pan and allow to cool at room temperature. Cut into bite size squares for candies and wrap individually in waxed paper, or heat some over low heat using more half & half to thin it out to make a dipping caramel. Store in an airtight container, put in frig if keeping more than a few days.

I LOVE homemade caramels so much that I can only make them during the holidays!
