  1. Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a low boil over medium heat.

  2. Continue cooking, stirring frequently for 13-15 minutes, until a candy thermometer reads 245 degrees, or when a small amount of caramel placed on a cold ceramic dish turns to the desired consistency within thirty seconds.
