In cooking, Caramel is mainly used ad a confectionery product. You can use it as a flavoring, a filling or a topping, for puddings, desserts, bonbons, ice creams, etc. For example, it is used to make French crème brulée. But it can also be used to caramelize meat or vegetables and make a sweet and sour recipe.
