Cleaning Burned Caramel from a Pan

January 17, 2006

cooking caramelWhile making caramel corn, I burned the bottom of my saucepan while making the syrup. I used hot water and Dawn to remove it. Put water and soap in the pan and boil on the stove for 10 minutes. The burned stuff came right off.

I do the boiling to clean the custard cups when I make flan for the family.

We have no baking soda or bicarb either. How else can we remove burned caramel from a pan?

I left a pan of sugar water boiling to make hummingbird food - It boiled dry - what a mess and the smoke was horrible. My husband found the answer - boil peroxide in the pan!


Just bring it to a boil, cover and turn off the heat. Let it set until cool and just use a paper towel to wipe away the black crust! I was amazed!
