Is caramel supposed to give burning smell while cooking










Caramel sauce just like any other sauce is used as an



 ingredient in desserts and sugary products. But it is only used



 for sweet products not the salty ones in which tomato sauce



 are used. Caramel sauce is made by heating different variety



 of sugars. It is also used in pudding, desserts, cakes, cookies,



 sweets and many other sugar related recipes. It is also used



 in one of the most favorite recipe loved by everyone and is



 widely consumed worldwide which is ice cream. The caramel



 sauce is used as a topping in ice creams.

 

 








No, caramel does not give a burning smell whole cooking



 unless you are actually trying to burn it loll. As long as it does



 not taste bitter when you check than its good and also you



 can check it from its color because the original color of



 caramel is dark brown and the color of burnt caramel is black



 so you can also judge the caramel from its color and it will



 give you an idea if that caramel is burnt or not. Smell also



 matters but normally caramel does not give burning smell



 when it is heated or you are cooking it so you have to be clear



 on that.

 











Why did my caramel burn?

 













Why did my caramel burn









Your caramel burns because of some mistakes that many



 people make in making it. So there a couple of mistakes that



 people do which causes caramel to burn. So the first mistake



 is making caramel at high temperature as high heat or



 temperature causes to burn sugar quickly but the caramel you



 are trying to get will not be formed and it will get over heated



 and as a result of overheating it will get burnt.

 













What does burnt caramel smell like?

 














What does burnt caramel smell like









Well the burning smell of a caramel is somehow similar to the



 burning smell of the bread. I do not find its burning smell a lot



 irritating as many people compared the burning smell of



 caramel with vomit but it’s not that bad. Vomit smell is a lot



 worse thing. So there is no such important thing in the smell



 of burnt caramel its smell is same as that of anything that is



 burnt. For example if you burn bread than its smell will be a



 little bit similar to that of burning caramel.















How do you know if caramel is burnt?











How do you know if caramel is burnt









Well it all depends on the color of the caramel. When your



 caramel color becomes too much dark and is close to turning



 into black color than that’s the point where your caramel starts



 burning. The real color of the caramel is dark brown and not



 black so you should keep that in mind while preparing



 caramel.

 











How long does burning smell last?













How long does burning smell last









Well the burning smell of caramel lasts as long as it remains



 warm and the smell fades away as soon as it starts to cool



 down. So if you want to get rid of that caramel burning smell



 just add a little bit of lemon juice and also honey and also add



 some vanilla scent flavor just for the good aroma and by



 doing this I am sure that the burning smell will surely fade.

 











Should caramel smell burnt?











Should caramel smell burnt









In normal condition caramel does not smell like burnt. It only



 smells like burnt when it is actually burning. When it is actually



 burning you will notice that not only it will smell burnt but also



 it will taste bitter and its color will also change from dark



 brown to black. So make sure and keep in mind these



 differences so that you will actually know when the caramel 



is burning and when it is not.













What does it mean if you smell burnt sugar?














What does it mean if you smell burnt sugar








Well actually this means when you are comparing the brunt



 sugar smell to something else like what it smells like



 according to you. So in my opinion it smells like somewhat



 similar to the burning smell of bread. But some people



 compare the smell of burnt sugar to the smell coming out of



 an ac radiator. I don’t know how they connect these two



 strings but still they call it like that.

 









How do you keep melted caramel from hardening?














How do you keep melted caramel from hardening









Well you avoid or prevent melted caramel from hardening by



 simply adding natural acids. I prefer to use some lemon juice.



 So before heating the sugar to prepare caramel add a little



 lemon juice about 1 tablespoon and mix it well in sugar. Try to



 use hands so that lemon juice is mixed properly with sugar



 and then start the heating process until the sugar melts and



 caramel is obtained. After that allow it to cool and you will see



 it not become hard.

 

 











Does nitroglycerin smell like burnt sugar?











Does nitroglycerin smell like burnt sugar











Well nitroglycerin does have a burning smell but it does smell



 like a burnt sugar. It’s a little bit different. As many people use



 nitroglycerin tablets to relieve from chest pains and it is also



 use to improve blood flow to the heart when there is not



 enough blood flow to the heart. So it’s also used in medicine.



 There are many other uses of it but as far as the smell of



 nitroglycerin is concerned than it only has burning smell but



 not of a brunt sugar it’s more like a burnt meat.

What can go wrong when making caramel?









What can go wrong when making caramel










You may be wondering why your caramel tastes bitter while it



 is all made of sugar. So what is wrong with your caramel? So



 the reason of your caramel to be bitter is because of the way



 you make by overheating or burning of the caramel. So that’s



 the basic wrong with your caramel. So if you don’t do these



 mistakes while making your caramel then there will be nothing



 wrong with your caramel and your caramel will be perfectly



 fine.
