REVIEW: recipe rating
My batch didn't taste like I thought it would, but it was still good. Perhaps I will try a bit of salt in the recipe next time.

COMMENT:
I think the temperature on this recipe is off. I had a tough time getting it up to 244 degrees and used two different candy thermometers. I ended up with a tasty hard caramel that is going to be hard to eat.
