The fall season is a great time for remembering those cherished moments with family and friends. I am sure some of those memories include apples in some way — apple picking, baking with apples, crafting, or even an aromatic body scrub or bubble bath.

from: Life With Lorelai
Serves: 3/4 Cup
3/4 Cup - Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup - Dark Brown Sugar
1 Cup - Boiling Water
Mix both Sugars and get the lumps out.
Spread sugar evenly over the bottom of a heavy skillet (i use cast iron).
Place over medium heat.
Stir gently with a wooden spoon, moving sugar constantly to the hottest pat of the pan until melted to a syrup.
Very gradually add Boiling Water.
The sugar may become hard again, but it will melt in a few minutes.
Stir constantly to avoid scorching.
Simmer over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes (longer if needed) letting the hardened sugar re-melt, and allowing the syrup to reduce and thicken.slightly. (If it is too thick when cold, add a little hot water and boil again.
Clean-up may look daunting, but a little hot water and a scouring sponge melts the mess away in minutes.
This sauce is used in my Caramel Apple Crumbly Bread recipe.
If you love caramel and apples, you will absolutely adore this tasty Caramel Apple Crumbly Bread. Serve it for breakfast, brunch, coffee or tea, or even as a dessert topped with vanilla ice cream and a Homemade Caramel Sauce drizzle.
