(Closed) Popcorn recipes?

Hello! This is my first post on weddingbee! Not even close to getting married but well… I love the website!   I have a very nice (sweet) popcorn recipe. It’s a bit messy and not very easy on the calories, but hey…

And it’s not very precise either I’m afraid…

1. In a large pan with high sides, heat a tbsp of vegetable oil. Drop one kernel in and when it pops, it means the oil is hot enough. Cover the bottom of the pan with kernels, but just one layer, max. Cover with the lid, and don’t open until there are no more sounds πŸ™‚ You’ll have  to slightly shake the pan from time to time to prevent burning…  

2. When all kernels are popped (well, never all of them pop!!), leave the pan closed, and then prepare a caramel with salted butter (that’s from Brittany, in France – I’m french btw!). Very easy if you follow the instructions: 

You’ll need

1/3 cup white sugar

1/3 stick salted butter

1/2 cup whipping cream 

Put the sugar in a non-sticking pan on a medium heat. It will start to melt. DON’T TOUCH IT, STIR IT, or anything, until it is an amber liquid. It will take 3 or four minutes.

While doing this, heat the cream in your microwave oven until just before it boils (dunno the technical word in English!)

When the sugar has transformed into a yummy amber liquid, take the pan off the heat and add the cream (pay attention, there might be projections!), Stir well (now you’re allowed πŸ™‚ ), and add the butter cut in bits.

Stir again without stopping for a couple of minutes, until the thing is creamy enough. You can add a little cream if you think it’s not liquid enough…  

Now the messy part, and you have to be fast and energetic! Transfer the pop corn in a big salad bowl, one you can close, or one you can put a plate on to close it.

Sprinkle sugar on it, then add the caramel. Now close the bowl, hold it very firmly and…. shake it! Like a huge shaker, upside down and everything, so that the caramel goes everywhere. This is sports, lady πŸ™‚ I do it for at least 4/5 minutes usually…

There you are… It is yum-my! Enjoy the week-end!!!     

 (by the way, the shaking part also works wonders with salads that you buy on the go in plastic packaging, to get the sauce to go all the way to the bottom leaves!)

Our family does two different kinds. the first one is messy,but my fav:

Once the pop corn is done add honey and a little bit of salt. Its sticky but really,really good.

The other one you add a little bit of suger with the oil and the kernels then pop.  Once done add some salt.

Both are really tasty but not so festive looking(great for a movie).

Try coconut oil, lemon and salt. I have yet to try it but my daughter had me buy plain kernels at the farmers market after she had it at her friend’s house.

We sprinkle kernals we cook on the stove with salt, pepper, garlic, and powdered yeast! Sounds gross but its awesome.

AB Bride:  I just finished reading a book that talked constantly about everyone eating caramel popcorn and I’ve been craving the real deal (not the kind you buy pre-package and pre-popped in the store.) I’m thrilled to see this thread bubble up from the depths πŸ˜€

 

For a savory option, garlic powder and a pinch of Cayenne is the way to go. Mmmm!

Wow, this is old, but I”m so glad it came up!  Popcorn is wonderful, and that original caramel corn recipe sounds to die for πŸ˜€

Any other whirly-pop fans out there?
