Teresa chose Caramel Corn from the July issue of Living and Brette kindly sent me the recipe, as the July issue will arrive in the UK in July and not a moment before so I don’t fully know what this should have looked like but I assume a bit like Poppycock Popcorn.
For the record, after seeing this recipe I had to put my diet on hold for another week, but I think it was worth it. I never make popcorn, in fact I never really have it, preferring sweets to popcorn when I go to the cinema.
Anyway, I popped my corn and had six cups so I halved the recipe. This was easy to make. I even had some corn syrup in the cupboard. I found that when I poured the caramel on the popcorn that it was hard to distribute, and halfway through baking I made some more caramel as there just didn’t seem to be enough.
The result : wonderful. Dad thankfully ate most of what I put out and I am sure that he will demolish the rest whilst watching football tonight. I ate some of it, and liked it (so I have stayed away from it – the last thing I need is a few more pounds to shift!)
This was a great pick Teresa. Thank you.
