  1. For the caramel: Combine the sugar, corn syrup, honey, and salt in a 3 quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the mixture simmers around the edges. Brush the sugar off the sides. Cover and cook for about three minutes.
  2. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pot and cook until it reaches 308 degrees (if you don't have a candy thermometer, cook for about eight minutes.).
  3. While the sugar mixture is cooking, bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan.
  4. Remove the sugar mixture from heat, and immediately stir in butter. Gradually stir in the hot cream.
  5. Return to heat until mixture slightly boils.
  6. Stir, and cook for 22-30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
