Crunchy Caramel

Grandma's Hint

A pinch of ground sea salt added makes it salty-caramel flavored.

Boil one pound of sugar in a saucepan until it is a brown caramel, and then pour it into a porcelain bowl, and set in a cool place until cold. Then pound to a powder in a mortar, or roll on a board with a rolling pin until crushed fine.

Now boil one quart of cream, beat the yolks of twelve eggs or less until light, add gradually to the cream; also the caramel, remove from the fire, and when cold, freeze in ice cream freezer. You may add an additional flavour of vanilla or orange. Adding whipped cream improves it.
