Valerie Lugonja, from a Canadian Foodie, spent time showing Emily Mardell from Get Joyfull, and myself how to make cloudberry salted caramels. I attempted to make a batch of caramels in the summer, and it was an epic fail. So I was pretty excited to give these a go under the watchful eye of an experienced baker. We made two batches, using three thermometers to keep track of the most accurate temperature. It turns out my thermometer wasn't good at all. Likely the culprit of the first failed attempt.
The end result of these batches, however, were soft, chew caramels with a subtle cloudberry flavour. A real treat! They were finished with some of Valerie's exquisite Atlantic salt. A perfect pairing for these Eastern Canadian berries.
