Caramel Popcorn

I have recently started making Caramel popcorn and I had no idea how easy it is to make. The more I cook and read blogs, little by little I have become more confident in the kitchen and am learning items that we may traditionally buy at the store with a list of ingredients as long as our arm are super easy to make. This is a fun treat, but on a regular basis just make the popcorn with a sprinkle of spice or cinnamon and a touch of sugar. Popcorn is a whole grain and makes a fun snack, with endless flavor possibilities. 

  • 60g butter (1/2 stick)
  • 100g sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • 1/2 cup of popcorn
  • a drop of oil
  1.  heat a little oil, add a couple of kernels of corn and wait for them to pop 
  2. then add the rest of the corn on a low heat and allow it all to pop
  3. meanwhile melt the butter 
  4. add the salt and sugar and simmer on a low/medium heat after about 5-7 minutes it will change color to brown keep stirring and it will start to thicken and turn into caramel as if by magic
  5. pour this over the corn and allow to cool 
  6. enjoy
  7. its also great drizzled on apples, I made this with the kids last week and they also topped with sprinkles
Fun fact popcorn is not regular corn it is a particular type of corn/ maize that will pop when heated there is evidence of it being eaten thousands of years ago in Peru, they even have a purple one. 

What's your favorite popcorn flavor?
