Ingredients portion 8

Coarse sea salt 4 g

Sugar 150 g

Cream 35% 260 ml

Butter 15 g

Cooking instructions 20 minutes

1 Put one ladle over a low heat. Pour in the cream and leave to simmer slowly.

2 Put another ladle over a medium heat. Pour in the sugar and add 2 tablespoons of water. Keep on the heat for 5 minutes – the sugar will dissolve and take on the colour of cognac. Do not stir, but occasionally turn the ladle or tilt it slightly in different directions. You may need more time – it depends on the cooker.

3 Check the cream – it must be hot.

4 Add the butter and hot cream to the brandy-coloured sugar. Stir well for 1 minute.

5 Add half the salt. Stir for 3 minutes.
