Sweet caramel popcorn




  • Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon peanut oil 
    1 cup unpopped white popcorn 
    2 teaspoons salt 
    2 cups light brown sugar 
    1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter 
    1 cup light corn syrup 
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Method:
Heat peanut oil in a large pot over high heat. Add 6 kernels to pan as testers; cover. When at least 3 of the kernels pop, add remaining kernels. Shake pan occasionally as corn pops. Keep over high heat until popping slows to a few pops per second, about 5 minutes. Empty popped corn into a large brown paper bag. Add 2 teaspoons salt. Shake bag to distribute salt and drain excess oil; discard unpopped kernels. Measure 13 cups of fully popped kernels; spread on large roasting pan; set aside.

Combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and baking soda in medium heavy saucepan; heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Cook, without stirring, until mixture reaches 150 degrees C on a candy thermometer, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat.
Heat oven to 165 C
Carefully pour caramel mixture over popcorn. Stir mixture with heat-resistant spatula or buttered wooden spoon to evenly coat popcorn, working quickly to coat kernels.

Bake popcorn 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes to continue coating uniformly. Remove pan from oven; cool on wire rack. Break apart any clumps of corn with your hands.
