Chocolate Caramel Day - March 19

Today we celebrated a great combination of two amazing flavors - chocolate and caramel. Caramel has a special taste and smell, which is a bit difficult to define, ranges from sweet to bitter and is formed from sugar that is heated and becomes liquid and chocolate has a special and addictive taste that we do not need to define because we all know. The two together put a smile on faces and an addictive sense of happiness, if only for a few moments.

Caramel chocolate is one of the greatest culinary inventions in history. The origin of the caramel is not really known. It lies somewhere in the two hundred years between 1650 and 1880 in the Americas, when the new settlers tried to make candies by heating water with their sugar added fat and milk, and thus the caramel was born. During this period refined sugar was rare and expensive, so the caramel was often prepared with sugar beet juice.
One of the most successful and famous makers of caramel candy in the late 19th century was Milton Hershey of Pennsylvania, USA. There he bought German chocolate machines which he was very enthusiastic about. He bought the equipment and soon started making their chocolate bars and added the ingredient from which he had previously earned a respectable living - the caramel.

Caramel Day - April 5

National Caramel Day is celebrated every year on April 5th. Caramel lovers celebrate this day in honor of their favorite treat that adds a sweet, creamy flavor to desserts, pastries and candies.

The caramel is made by adding milk and fat to the sugar that has been heated and turned into a syrup and stirring continuously until it reaches a light brown color.

Many bakers and confectioners use caramel to make a variety of desserts as a prominent ingredient, or as a supplement.

The caramel can also be used as a syrup or as a paste that holds nuts and popcorn and also as a coating for candied apples.

The more the caramel is cooked, the deeper the color and the stronger the taste until the sugar becomes bitter and no longer tasty.

There is also a salted caramel sauce that was invented in 1977 by the French pastry chef Henri Le Roux in Quiberon, Brittany, in the form of a salted butter caramel with crushed nuts (caramel au beurre salĂ©), using Breton demi-sel butter. The salted caramel is suitable for ice cream, brownies, baked cakes and muffins.

Interesting facts about caramel

The word "caramel" comes from a Medieval Latin word "cannamella" which means canna 'cane' + mella 'honey', and late Latin word "calamellus" which means 'sugar cane'.

Although the source is unknown, it is speculated that American settlers in 1650 made hard toffee candies from kettles from caramel. Because it was an economical candy to make, it found its way into many recipes.

Around 1850, someone discovered that adding milk and fat product to the cooked sugar mixture created a soft and chewy candy. It is not surprising how quickly soft caramel has become popular.

In 1960, Vito Raimondi, with the help of his uncle William Raimondi, invented and registered a patent for the first caramel apple machine.

Toffee, or in the US "caramel candy", is a soft, dense, chewy candy, produced by boiling a mixture of milk or cream, sugar, glucose, butter and vanilla (or vanilla flavor).

Caramel is also used as a natural food coloring marked as E-150, especially in soft drinks like Coca-Cola.
