    I have always been a fan of sweet food and I am looking forward to getting new honey recipe from this forum.

    Thanks for the article, this must be so delicious! Prefer to use unsalted butter.

    My first attempt was an epic fail. Turned into a rock. Will give it another shot and take it off the heat 5 degrees earlier. J

    J, mine stayed a bit on the too soft side. Had to keep it refrigerated or it kinda melted. I need to bump up about the same 5

    Well JW, I told the truth, but not the whole truth. Actually, my first batch was too soft. It never did get anywhere near solid even after sitting in the garage for a night. But, I removed both batches when thermometer hit 275F. I used honey from 2 different jars and am now wondering if the composition of the honey may make a difference. J

    One is supposed to temperature check the accuracy of candy thermometer used. There's some trial and adjusting temperature beyond that. Too soft so need to go to a higher temp, too hard and go to a lower temp.

    The 3-4 batches that we made were probably a bit softer than store bought caramel, but that's the way we like it. It doesn't stick to my teeth and makes it easier to chew. We added nearly a cup of black walnuts to our last batch too.....oh yumm!!!

    Just talking about it makes me hungry for it again......time to crank out another batch or two.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Success! I took mgolden's advice and checked my brand new thermometer. It was 30 degrees off (low)! It doesn't explain my too soft batch, but I used a different one and they came out perfect. Thanks for posting Kamon.

    30 degrees low would make it turn out soft (undercooked)

    No, I meant it was reading 30 degrees low meaning that I actually heated to 305 which makes it turn into a brick. J
