Welcome to this month’s Sad Saturday where we share our, um “learning experiences.”
Right. Let’s hope I learn not to do this again: A few weeks ago I was making my apple dip caramel sauce for our annual apple tasting. There’s a point in the recipe where you’ve got to stir constantly. As in, don’t do anything else.
That’s really hard for me, which was fairly obvious since I had written in big letters on the recipe, “BURNS EASILY.”
Apparently, it’s still hard for me. And so I ended up with this:
It’s not in me to throw something away (OK, if I can help it- there was one time this was burnt so bad there was nothing else to do but toss it- probably when I wrote the big letters…), so I decided to filter it through a fine mesh strainer, thinking the larger brown pieces would be left behind.
Not so sad after all.
