Best Butterscotch Sauce Recipe

1 cup homemade dark brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Melt butter in a heavy saucepan on medium heat. Just before all of it melts, add the brown sugar. Stir with a wooden spoon until it bubbles. Add the cream and whisk over low heat.
Once all of the mixture is uniform, turn the heat back up to medium; whisking the bubbling sauce approximately 10 minutes. Pour into a heatproof bowl and cool to room temperature.

Whisk in half of the vanilla and salt, tasting to see if you have reach what you are looking for. Add the remaining vanilla and salt – you should have the butterscotch flavor now. If not add more vanilla, etc.
Store in a tightly fitted container in the refrigerator. It will keep for a month, if it lasts that long…
