Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

Recently, I feel like I’ve seen caramel cropping up more often than it used to. I see more caramel in ice cream and on dessert menus. I even see it more in the candy bars in the checkout line at the grocery store. Maybe it’s not more prevalent than it used to be. Maybe it’s…
