I brought home a haul from the farmers’ market this weekend, including bags of sweet corn and a behemoth of a Hubbard squash (which I had never even heard of before, much less cooked). You can substitute with butternut or similar squash.  Continue Reading

Spiced Caramel Corn

Spiced Caramel Corn- a twist on classic caramel popcorn by HoneysuckleAfternoons.com

Cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and cayenne flavor this Spiced Caramel Corn recipe- it’s a richer take on the classic, with a sweet heat from the cayenne and ginger balanced by vanilla and a bit of salt.

The recipe calls for 16 cups of popped corn; you can use an air popper, pop on the stove, or (my favorite method) place a scoop of kernels in a brown paper bag, fold the top over tightly (but leave plenty of room in the bag), and microwave for 2 minutes or less.

If you like a higher caramel-to-popcorn ratio, double the caramel mixture recipe. I’m sure you can find something else to dip in the mixture if you have extra (grapes, tortilla chips, oatmeal cookies…).

I added a cup of peanuts to make copycat Cracker Jacks- but I bet PECANS would be even better in this recipe!

Make sure you sift out any unpopped kernels before coating them in caramel so you don’t break your teeth off!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250
  2. Spread out popped popcorn on a jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. Place in the oven while you make the caramel.
  3. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, mix brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt, and spices. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium heat. Then STOP stirring. Let boil for 5 minutes.
  4. Add baking soda and vanilla extract to the caramel mixture.
  5. Retrieve popcorn from oven. Pour caramel mixture over the popcorn, stirring to coat evenly. Pop back into the oven and bake for about 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, let cool to the touch, and break apart.
Recipe Notes

Make sure the popped popcorn is free of unpopped kernels. You don't want to break teeth!
