Cook over high heat until the sugar dissolves, brushing the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush to get rid of any sugar crystals. Boil without stirring until the caramel turns a deep copper colour. Remove from the heat, add the cream and quickly step back. The cream will cause the caramel to bubble volcanically before settling again. Add the butter and use a small balloon whisk to stir until it melts. Bring back to the boil, add the sea salt and cook until the thermometer registers 116°C (240°F), Leave to cool slightly. Taste and adjust the salt if needed.
