1/2 cup popping corn kernels
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
125g (4.4 oz) butter
3/4 cup soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
The smell of popping corn and caramel in the kitchen is delicious. The taste is even better.
Hints and Tips
Add nuts of your choice such as peanuts, pecans or toasted flaked almonds.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan until very hot. Add the salt to the hot oil and one or two kernels. If they start to spin, the oil is hot enough, add the remainder of the corn and cover with a lid. While the corn is popping, shake the saucepan regularly until there is no more popping. Remove from heat and pour into a large baking dish.
In a small saucepan, melt butter, sugar and honey. Once sugar has dissolved bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
Pour hot caramel over popcorn and mix gently. Be careful as the caramel will be very hot. Allow to cool in the baking tray, it should be slightly crunchy, and serve.
