Countdown to Christmas: Day 8 - make a tasty batch of Ina Garten's salted caramel

Who doesn't love to receive a fresh batch of homemade candy as a gift?
As I've said before just because someone is a celebrity chef doesn't mean their recipes are good.  I have had a few incidents of trying celebrity chef's recipes and even after trying them twice they are simply not a good combination of ingredients together. 

With Ina, I know that all her recipes are tried and true and that they promise to be delicious.  I like that reliability and especially when I'm busy through the Holidays.  Although not an easy candy to make this is delicious and makes a perfect, inexpensive gift to give away to teachers, neighbors and bring as a Hostess gift. 

 I like to use simple silver or gold colored chinese take out containers that are quite inexpensive from Michaels craft store.  I line the container with parchment paper.
