Q:

How do you caramelize brown sugar?

A:

To caramelize brown sugar, mix sugar, water and lemon juice, and then heat the mixture until it browns. You need 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice, a heavy-bottomed saucepan and a spatula.

  1. Mix the ingredients

    Combine the ingredients in the saucepan. Stir until the water is combined and the mixture looks like wet sand.

  2. Heat the mixture

    Place the pan on the burner, and heat it over medium-low heat. Stir frequently as the mixture begins to bubble.

  3. Watch the color

    Stop stirring once the mixture begins to boil, and carefully watch the color. It should begin to darken until it reaches the color of a penny. Once it reaches this color, remove the pan from the burner.
