Priscilla and I have been making our famous caramels for years now Video #18 – Making Caramels with Priscilla and we thought is was time to actually start teaching others how to make them as well. They are easy to make, yet can be challenging at the same time. Here in Colorado, we have our own specific challenges due to the dryness and the altitude. I made a batch a few days before everyone got here and even though I have been making them for years, it took me four tries because it never set properly. Fortunately the 4th time was the charm. We are still learning new things and new techniques, even after all these years.
Laura is prepping her pan.
Lauren is chopping her pecans. She got really creative and added some praline liqueur as well.
And the process begins. Laura and Lauren are at the stove, stirring their pots.
We made 5 batches of caramels this time. We had to make them in shifts, with two of us at the stove at a time. Laura is watching and learning from the pro.
After the caramels were done, we had to toast with a margarita. And we all enjoyed some tamales and green chili in celebration. Video #22 – Green Chili. YUM We all had a good time and a lot of laughs. AND A LOT of caramels too.
Life is short. Make the most of all the time you have. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
