How to make a silky Salted Caramel Sauce?

Making salted caramel at home is simple but requires a little bit of patience.

Prepare the sea salt caramel by heating the sugar and water in a saucepan on medium heat. Let the sugar cook in the saucepan without stirring it. The sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a dark brown liquid.

Reduce the heat to medium-low, and slowly pour the heavy cream into the melted sugar. Constantly stir the mixture until light brown. Continue stirring and cooking the sauce for 2 to 5 minutes until it thickens. Turn off the heat and stir in the sea salt.

How to make the Salted Caramel Chestnut Paste?

Cook the peeled chestnut in a pot with boiling water for 20 minutes until cooked. Remove and drain the chestnut. Transfer them into a food processor, and blend it with heavy cream and water for 1 minute until smooth.

Pour the chestnut puree into a non-stick frying pan and cook it on medium-low heat. Add butter to the chestnut puree and stir it constantly until smooth and thickens.

Turn off the heat, and combine the chestnut paste with salted caramel sauce. Stir well, and store the chestnut paste with an airtight sterilized glass jar.

How to peel the fresh chestnut.

The easiest way to peel and remove the inner skin of the chestnut is to boil it.

First, make a cut on the back of the chestnut shell with a kitchen kneif. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan, and cook the chestnut for 1 minute. Remove, and peel the shell when it’s still hot.

Rub off the inner husk with a kitchen towel, and it comes off easily when it’s still warm.
