Recipe from Salted: A Manifesto on the World's Most Essential Mineral | Caramels with Bitterman's Fleur de Sel 0

Bitterman’s Fleur de Sel works beautifully on salted caramels.  The small crystals dissolve quickly on the tongue, pouring out a surge of salty intensity that’s backed by the buttery richness and creamy texture of the caramel. The resulting confection is one that’s flavorful, lusciously smooth, salty, yet sweet, and perfectly balanced on the tongue. Though many people believe that a fleur de sel must be from France, these caramels will show you that’s not the case.
