Crepes:
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour and salt. Whisk in the eggs, milk, and water and stir until the batter has a nice consistency. Add in 4 tablespoon of melted butter and mix it together. Let the batter rest at room temperature for approximately 30 minutes.
Using a nonstick frying pan over medium heat, add the remaining butter and let it melt into the pan. Ladle about ¼ cup of the batter into the pan and rotate the pan to spread out the batter evenly. Cook the crepe until it is golden brown and lacy. Place the crepe into a heatproof plate. Repeat the same steps with the remaining batter.
Filling:
In a separate mixing bowl, combine the apples, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, and salt and
Using the same nonstick frying pan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Add the sugar into the pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until the sugar turns amber in color. Combine the apples and the amber sugar and continue to cool until the apples are soft and completely caramelized.
Caramel:
In a small pot over medium heat, add the unsalted butter and pour in the granulated sugar. Cook the granulated sugar until it is golden brown. Then, add the heavy cream and stir nicely. Add the vanilla bean into the caramel mixture and continue to stir once the mixture has a thick consistency. Sift the caramel and add 2 pinches of fleur de sel. Freeze the caramel for 1 hour.
