Caramel Procedure:

  1. In a deep pan, mix together sugar, water, and cream of tartar.
  2. Bring up to a quick boil until golden in color.

The caramel will crystallize when stored in a cold area, so as much as possible use it immediately, or if it has hardened already, heat it over a low fire or over a very very hot pot of boiling water.
