Homemade Salty Caramel Popcorn for the Weekend!

The long weekend is upon us. Do you have anything planned? 

The only thing I have planned, for now, is to make popcorn... so I thought I'd multitask and show you a few pictures from my recent 9 year old boy birthday party, and tell you how we made popcorn that day! 

Here's how to make popcorn from scratch. I prefer this method 
to the microwavable versions. It's healthier and better tasting! And, since it's so easy to make, homemade wins every time here at my house!

1. Cover a pan with a thin layer of oil. If it's a high smoke point oil like canola, coconut, or olive oil, much better. 

2. Heat the oil.

3. Put 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in an even layer into the pan and cover.

4. Wait for them to start popping.

5. Once full popping is on, gently shake the pan back and forth so all the kernels are evenly cooked. Try to keep the lid a bit open so steam finds a way out. This way popcorn will come out crispier.

6. When you stop hearing loud popping and a longer silence in between pops, dump all the popcorn into a wide bowl.

7. You can melt butter now in the empty pan and then drizzle it over the popcorn.  

8. I prefer to put 1 or 2 spoonfuls of sugar in the hot pan, dissolve it, and then add it to the popcorn. After mixing the caramel in, add salt to the popcorn and mix it all in. This way you get salty caramel delightful popcorn. 

Have a fun weekend!
