1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup light corn syrup

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon flakey sea salt, such as fleur de sel

3/4 cup heavy cream

Combine light brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt, and 1/4 cup of water in medium pot. Bring to a simmer and cook until sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes.

Transfer to jars. Sauce will keep for up to one month in the refrigerator.
