Salty Caramel Popcorn

My husband made this amazing caramel popcorn using household ingredients. The salty/sweet combination is divine!



Salty Caramel Popcorn

Ingredients

For popcorn;
1/3 cup Popcorn kernels
3 Tbls Popcorn oil (we used Orville Redenbacher's Popping & Topping Buttery Flavor Popcorn Oil)

For caramel;
3 Tbls oil (enough to cover the top of the sugar, we used the popcorn oil)
1 Tbls vegan margarine
1/3 cup sugar (we used Florida Crystals Organic Sugar)
salt (to taste)


Method

In one large pan add oil and corn kernels and coat well. Turn temperature up to medium/high (we use a gas stove).
Cover with lid and ever few minutes pick up pot and swirl so kernels don't get stuck on the bottom and burn. Once popping slows down to 1 pop every 3 seconds the popcorn should be all done.

In a separate saucepan, pour sugar, margarine & oil and mix well on a medium/high heat, stirring constantly, until sugar starts to turn slightly brown then remove from heat.
Pour over popcorn, using a spoon (husband uses a chopstick to avoid sticking) to stir through evenly. Allow to cool so that the caramel sets before eating.
