Salted Carmel Ice Cream
1 1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp flaky sea salt - such as fleur de sel
Heat sugar in a medium/large size heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden sppon, until it starts to "melt". Continue stirring until it's a dark amber color. Once you get the color you're looking for, remove from heat quickly to prevent burning and slowly whisk in cream a little at a time until fully disolved then stir in salt. Pour into a glass bowl and place into a larger bowl filled with ice to stop the cooking process.
Chill completely. Once chilled mix with Ben & Jerry's base (below) and add to ice cream maker.
