Salted Caramel Covered Strawberries

I found these today over at The Steamy Kitchen.  My fascination with salted confections continues!

Oh how I wish it was strawberry season.  Of course you can still get strawberries...I am sure they were grown in a far away land like Chile or Mexico but sometimes you have to go against the principals of eating locally and in season and just go for it.   I think pistachios would be a better choice over the peanuts don’t you?  I don’t think they grow pistachios here in NC either.  I am really pushing it today!
