Caramel Sauce..........

Is it Caramel or Carmel? Well, according to what I've read, it is Caramel. Some shorten it to Carmel, but that's not right. As they taught us in spelling class; if you pronounce it right, you will spell it right.
Caramel Sauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup half-and-half
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
Mix the brown sugar, half-and-half, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, while whisking gently, until thicker, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the vanilla and cook another minute to thicken further. Pour the sauce into a jar and refrigerate until cold. 
This will keep about 2 weeks in the fridge, IF it lasts that long. It will quickly disappear on a cake, pie or ice cream.
Till next time.......
