National Caramel Day Today
Caramels go back as early as the seventeenth century as it was a very inexpensive candy to produce. Around the 1850’s, it was discovered that by adding milk and fat to the sugar mixture that a softer, chewy candy could be produced. The longer caramel cooks, it takes on a deeper color and a darker flavour. Caramel, more popular as salted today, is delicious drizzled over our Toffee or Carrot Cakes when baked! A little fact for #NationalCaramelDay today folks.
