Step 5

Dip whatever you want to caramelize in the liquid caramel, turning it so that it is evenly covered. Place caramelized ingredients on a sheet of parchement paper.

Work as quickly as possible so that the sugar doesn’t cool down and crystalize.

The same procedure may be used for both fresh and dried fruit. Fresh fruit, however, contains water that may cause the caramel after a short time.

Caramalized fruit can be stored in tin boxes or sealable glass containers. Add salt to the container to absorb humidity.
