Once the sugar has melted and got a nice caramel color, add the margarine and mix

Once the margarine is absorbed, remove from the heat and while stirring, add the salt and vegetable milk.

Pass it through a strainer and put it in the fridge to thicken

Take a glass with a little hot water (from the recipe), place the saffron and let it dissolve
