Home made Caramel (No Cream, No Milk)

Tonight I wanted to make a quick dessert for my wife. I had plenty of apples, but no milk or cream to use to make caramel. Here is how I made some that went over just fine.

1 cup water
2 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons Sugar
.5 teaspoons Salt
3 Tablespoons Cold Water Mixed with 2 Tablespoons cornstarch

Step 1: Add water and butter to pan, melt the butter.  Add sugar and salt and heat to boil. Reduce the heat.
Step 2: Slowly stir in cornstarch\water mixture. Simmer, stirring to prevent burning, take off heat once you have a desired consistency.
