Vietnamese caramel sauce vs. Korean caramel sauce

Louise | Feb 24, 2007 04:42 PM

I am going to make the yummy sounding Vietnamese clay pot chicken but have a jar not of Vietnamese caramel sauce, but of Korean caramel sauce. That is, the label is in English and Korean, no Vietnamese. I tasted the stuff (after getting the jar open, the feat of Hercules) and expected it to be sort of sweet, however it is dark brown/black and tastes more like molasses with a slight burnt edge. The ingredient label says "sugar". Only. So are V caramel sauce and K caramel sauce the same, or not?
