*For a more traditional caramel: place ¼ cup sugar in a medium saucepan. Add 1 tablespoon of water and a pinch of salt. Heat over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved and starts boiling. After another 1-2 minutes, it will get nice golden brown color. At this point, remove from heat immediately as you don't want the caramel to burn, and divide into the ramequins.
