Stuff you will NEED:

2/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cups water
1/4 tsp salt
2 tblsp light corn syrup
3/4 tsp lemon juice
4 tblsp unsalted butter

Warm milk in sauce pan. In a medium sized heavy sauce pan, combine sugar, water salt and corn syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Cook without stirring until mixture is amber in color about 5 - 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add the milk in a slow stream stirring. It will boil vigorously (Tartine's word not mine, I would have said, don't worry if it looks like it is going to explode all is still well). Once mixture does not look like a science project whisk until smooth and add the lemon juice. Let it cool for 10 minutes and add the butter in 1" chunk, whisk them in until they dissolve one at a time.
