How to Make Lemon Rosemary Caramels
Preparing homemade caramels? Make it special with the addition of citrus and fresh herbs.
Candy is one of the most challenging and rewarding things that I make. Often it takes me a few tries to get a recipe right. But once I do, I can take that recipe and change the flavors to make something entirely different, just like I did with this candy. I took my Salted Whiskey Caramels and made a few changes. The result is a variation that is great for summer.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to use a properly working candy thermometer. If the caramel does not reach the correct temperature, it will either become too soft (like a sauce) or too hard (like a hard candy). The other key to successfully making caramels is to have everything ready before you start.
To begin, line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper; coat the paper with butter or cooking spray.
