  1. In a heavy bottom saucepan, combine sugar, salt and lemon juice.

  2. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon over medium heat until all of the sugar has melted.

  3. Continue to stir constantly and cook until the sugar reaches the colour desired. (I like mine a deep honey colour). Watch carefully - sugar burns and scorches in a flash.

  4. Immediately remove from heat and slowly pour in the water (be careful - it will splatter!!!)

  5. Return pan to heat. Stir constantly until no lumps remain.

  6. Let sauce cool completely before adjusting the consistency with water. Yield: serves 0
