I was trying to make caramel sauce for apples, and I caramelized the sugar and then stirred in cream, but it's still grainy, so I'm pretty sure I didn't cook it enough. Can it be rescued? I've been microwaving it in short bursts, but the graininess doesn't seem to be reducing yet. Thanks!

You need to bring it back up to a boil for a good 5 mins and maybe add a little water and more cream. Then give it a simmer for 15mins and if its still really grainy you're probably out of luck.

P.S. It's a wet caramel--sugar and water come to a boil, then caramelize, then I added cream.
