Without the finishing salt on top, this caramel tastes bitter, over cooked and has heavy overtones of coffee. With the finishing salt, this is easily one of the best, most flavorful, heavenly things I've ever put in my mouth! I chose some Hawaiian red sea salt which I purchased on our vacation there specifically for this recipe. I also waited a lo"
