So, what is caramelised sugar?

Caramelised sugar is a versatile ingredient used in a variety of sweet and savoury dishes, adding a rich, deep flavour and a lovely golden hue. To create caramelised sugar, granulated sugar is heated over medium heat until it melts and turns into a golden brown liquid. The sugar then caramelises, releasing a complex aroma and flavour profile that ranges from nutty to toasty to slightly bitter. Caramelised sugar can be used in desserts like flans, custards, and pies, as well as in savoury dishes like glazes for meats and vegetables. Its unique flavour and aroma make it a favourite among chefs and home cooks alike.
