McMaster’s- Carmel Corn

 

The time is here once again as the leaves start to change color, and there is a gentle nip in the air as if the wind is whispering to you that October has finally made it’s grand arrival upon the face of the land. Now I grew up in Colorado and it actually did get cold in October, unlike this blissful, pitiful excuse of Las Vegas, NV and its current weather patterns. I always had found memories of October; after all it’s a celebration of Halloween! The essence of popcorn, candy, customs, tricks or treating, and watching suspenseful movies is what I would call the normal thing most Americans do. I wish to share with you my recipe for creating Carmel corn.

 

 

The recipe

 

3 quarts popped corn

1-cup brown sugar

½ cup margin

¼ cup corn syrup

½ tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

½ tsp baking soda

 

Measure the sugar, margarine, syrup, and salt in 2- quart bowl. Place in microwave on high power. Bring to a boil for two minutes. (About 5 minutes total time). Carefully remove from microwave, stir vanilla and soda. Put popcorn in a large brown grocery bag. Pour syrup over popcorn fold over the top of bag and place in microwave. Cook on high for 1 minute. Shake bag and repeat this for a total of 3 minutes. Spread caramel corn on wax paper to cool. Store in tightly covered container. Then your final step is to enjoy!
