  • Cook the sugar. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the water and sugar. Cook this mixture over low-medium heat, until the color is dark amber. This should take about 15 to 20 minutes. Do not ever stir this mixture!
  • Add remaining ingredients. Once you've achieved the dark color, reduce the heat to low and carefully whisk in the butter, cream, and sour cream. Stand back! When you add these ingredients, the mixture will likely hiss and bubble up. Continue to whisk until it's smooth. Then add the salt, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg. Stir to blend, and remove from the heat.
