Cheat's salted caramel sauce

This is so easy - don't tell anyone. A jar of salted caramel makes a great Christmas present. If you don’t want the rum, just leave it out. It still tastes amazing.

You will need to have sterilised jars to keep the caramel in. This recipe makes about 2 jam jars of caramel.
