  • 400 g (2 cups) granulated sugar
  • 400 ml (1 + 2/3 cup) double cream (heavy cream)
  • 240 ml (1 cup) corn syrup
  • 60 g (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • ¾ tsp salt flakes


  1. Get your thermometer and silicon baking tray to hand.
  2. Add all the ingredients (minus the salt) into a saucepan over low heat and cook away stirring frequently until the butter is melted and the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Then increase the temperature to medium high and bring the mixture to the boil. Let it boil without stirring so it transforms into caramels.
  4. Keep checking the temperature of the caramel and as soon as it has got to 122C, switch off the heat and pour the caramel into the silicon tray.
  5. Gently tap the sides of the tray so that you remove any air bubbles and sprinkle on the salt flakes.
  6. Let cool fully (preferable overnight) before cutting and serving.
  7. These pumpkin salted caramels will keep best if you wrap individual portion in non-stick paper.
