I know that the FDA does not recommend making caramel sauce and canning it at home, saying there isn't a high enough acidity to preserve it. BUT at shops I always see caramel sauces in glass jars, meaning they weren't pressure cooked. I used to work for a woman who made caramel sauces professionally and, while she wouldn't hand over her recipe, I helped her make it and it really wasn't so hard. I know there was a bit of baking soda in it to balance the PH but other than that the ingredients were similar to what I make at home when I don't can it. However I can't find a recipe anywhere, and I'd really like one to use for Christmas gifts this year. Help!
