Butter, sugar, salt, cream - salted caramel isn't the trickiest thing to make yourself, and its constituent ingredients aren't all that tough to lay hands on. And yet we still find ourselves inexorably drawn to salt caramel in a jar. The stuff Alistair Wise sells at Sweet Envy is perhaps the benchmark, but if you're not in Hobart, consider Caramelicious, which has vanilla, cocoa, salted butter and cocoa-hazelnut versions ($9/200gm).
