Not-So-Scary Caramel

December 13, 2013

On Monday, we announced a new partnership with Panna, a subscription cooking app and website dedicated to sharing recipes from master chefs in HD video -- and we previewed our first video with them, in which Merrill made Midge's Burnt Caramel Pudding

Today, we're sharing more bonus footage: Merrill shows us how to easily make caramel at home.

Interested to see the whole pudding recipe come together? Watch the full-length video on Panna's website. And check out Merrill's two other tip videos on separating eggs and infusing cream with a vanilla bean.

Thank you for this video. I've been a subscriber to Panna since it first arrived and enjoy the app very much. Would you mind telling me what you cooked this on? A portable induction burner perhaps? Was the metal disk a way of using the copper pan? Which brands do you use? Are they available at Provisions? Thanks for your time.

Yes, good eye! The Panna team brought a portable induction burner for the video shoot, and we used an adapter, since that copper pot doesn't work directly on induction. I think this is the brand we have: http://www.amazon.com/Max-Burton-6010-Induction-Heat-Proof/dp/B00213L3PK?tag=food52-20 (Maybe someday soon we'll sell them in Provisions too!)
