Home-made Organic Caramel Popcorn

Our yummy afternoon-tea treat was organic caramel popcorn!

I had no idea that people weren't making their own popcorn until I read this post at Salt and Chocolate. To make caramel popcorn you just pop your own corn (see the link or the back of a packet of kernals) & then in a separate saucepan you mix a large chunk of butter with a generous helping of brown sugar and about a tablespoon of honey. Heat them all together, stirring as you go. Let it thicken for a few minutes. Take it off the heat & then mix in your popped corn. Serve. Eat. Brush your teeth :)

As you can see I'm a bit casual when it comes to precise measurements but reeeeeally you can't go too wrong!

  1. Hi Amber,
    Thanks for the recipe!
    Would you mind sharing where you got your beautiful wooden animals from (the ones your boys were making a puppet show with)? Thanks, Miri

  2. Looks yummy. My niece also likes to melt chocolate on her popcorn. Also a winner.

    I take it your middle take is Melody? I'm curious, do you sing? All the Melodys or Melodies I know sing. Random I know.

  3. Ok I'm now starving! Looks great. Found interesting article on allowing 30 minutes after drinking cokes to brush your teeth. I have NO idea if that applies to caramel!

  4. After I heard that the microwave popcorn is supposed to be bad for your health, I was thinking how I would make popcorn without a popcorn popper. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

  5. I just found your blog and read through the entire thing! I'm so inspired. I too have two little boys (three and 6 months) and am very interested in Montessori schooling. thanks for the great insight!

  6. Hi everyone!

    Miri - I was lucky enough to buy the wooden animals at a store locally & don't know if they are a particular brand or not. Sorry. I do love the Holztiger animals & bought some of them for Easter presents but they are quite a bit more expensive so will only be for special occasions I think. Sigh ;)

    SBG - you can leave Coca Cola on your teeth for 30 minutes!?! I thought they'd have fallen out by then!!

    Koko's mama - Please let me know if you make it!

    Val - yup! Yum :)

    Mer - Welcome! Please visit me again!
