  1. I’ve used Burke Ingredients before and they were good to work with https://burkecandy.com/ also, Albert Uster has some containers of those ingredients that are smaller in size (like the invert sugar). also, contact your state office of small business. When I was in Virginia they gladly provided me with names of businesses that were happy to do business with Small Business Owners.

    Troubleshooting Caramels

    It responds fairly quickly, but, what I do is raise the temp slowly as I’m cooking. If I do that, when I get close to the 150 F mark, then I stop raising the temp for about 15 minutes to allow the Maillard to kick in.

    Troubleshooting Caramels

    If you can control the heat to a specific degree, you can cook the caramel at about 150 F and hold it at that temp for 15 minutes which should be plenty of time to develop the malliard effect. Then, raise the temp to finish the cook.....
