Caramel sauce/caramel syrup is a common ingredient in clay pot recipes.


  1. Combine 1/2 cup sugar with 1/4 cup water or nước mắm in a small sauce pan over low heat.
  2. Swirl the pan frequently to avoid burning. When the sugar turns lightly brown, remove from the heat, add 1 cup of water or nước mắm. Guard against splattering.
  3. Let cool a little and return the sauce to the stove, and cook on low heat until all the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Let the sauce cool and store in a jar in the refrigerator for future use.
