  1. Salted Caramel Popcorn

    April 12, 2014 by sarah

    It is Saturday night and to me that means movie night. These days it is most often an ‘at home’ movie on DVD rather than a cinema experience. Apart from a special trip to The Rex, I don’t like going to the odious Odeon or the cynical Cineworld; over priced tickets for a standard chair, sticky carpets covered in popcorn, noisy customers, and no bar! Not nearly as pleasant as our own sofa, glass of wine in hand and a bowl of this delicious popcorn. I guess this is why our DVD collection would rival that of a well stocked rental shop!

    By the way, if you haven’t been to The Rex, you really MUST!

    Salted Caramel Popcorn

    100g butter
    100g soft brown sugar
    2 tablespoons golden syrup
    1-2 teaspoons sea salt, depending on taste
    Make a batch of popcorn, either old fashioned in a pan or a bag of plain microwave popcorn.
    Oil a large baking tray and tip over the popcorn, discarding any unpopped kernels. Preheat the oven to fan 160 ºC.
    Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a small pan, stir until melted and then boil for 4 minutes.
    Pour this sauce over the popcorn and toss with 2 spoons (it will be VERY hot and cause burns) until the popcorn is coated or the sauce goes stiff.
    Pu the tossed popcorn in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Take out and toss again, sprinkle over the salt and cook for another 5 minutes. Repeat again if the popcorn isn’t evenly coated.
    Leave to cool for 10 minutes before attempting to eat – otherwise you WILL burn your mouth!
