Step by step instructions
Step 1: Place the sugar and water in a small heavy saucepan and bring to a simmer. Do not stir but make sure that the sugar has dissolved in the early stages of heating.
Step 2: When the sugar is just turning a pale caramel (around 150C, you can use a sugar thermometer to check this), remove from the heat.

To clean the pot
Once you have poured off the caramel, fill the pot again with water and bring to the boil. This will dissolve the caramel and clean up your pot.
