This is so easy to burn. Which happened with my first try. I was letting it come up to temperature and it looked good, and I took it off the stove to do the water test, and it burnt. The next time I let it get to 90C, and dropped some into cold water. It didn't ball up, and it was rock hard. When I took it out of the water, it wasn't soft. I thought I'd over cooked it, even though it was still a clear color. I took it off the heat added milk (I had homo on hand, no cream), and margarine (no butter, it's bad for you). I put the pan back on the stove and let it cook some more. The caramel tasted buttery and good, but it wasn't thick. After a couple of days in an air tight container in the fridge, it has thickened up and has nice color. It's delicious over ice cream, apples, and drizzled over apple pie!
