Caramel Color

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
1                cup  sugar
4        tablespoons  water

In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring mixture to a boil
over medium heat; let boil for about 15 minutes, stir frequently with a
wooden spoon. (Don't panic. It will harden, soften, and smoke during this
process.) Remove pan from heat when the mixture turns a very dark molasses
color. Allow the mixture to cool completely about 10 minutes. At this
point, you may think you've made a mess and your pan is trash.  don't
worry! When the mixture is cool, add 1/4
cup boiling water. Return the pan to the stove, stir over medium heat for
about five minutes until it becomes a smooth, thin liquid. Cool
completely; store in a covered jar at room temperature indefinitely. Add 1
tablespoon caramel coloring to your bread doughs to give them a dark color
(it won't add sweetness). You can also brush it on pumpernickel and black
breads as a glaze before baking them in the oven.
