December 15: Caramel

This is seriously the best caramel. My brother, Jon and his wife, Lorri, came up with this recipe. Good for apples, popcorn, or just plain.
1 c light Karo syrup
1/2 c butter
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c sugar
Dash salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Bring sugars, Karo syrup, butter and salt to boil. Add sweetened condensed milk. Bring to gradual boil. Cook until soft ball stage (240 degrees). Add baking soda and mix well.
