I was thrilled to find O.R.'s original
Gourmet Popping Corn recently at Costco.
Usually they just have the Microwave Popping corn
and we definitely prefer the regular,
pop on the stove, in the old Popcorn pot, popped corn!
This was a typical Costco gynormous size - 3.6 kg.
I've never seen one that large!
No problem though - I know we'll use it up in no time.
Tomorrow we are having a staff decorating
party during coffee break so I decided
to make a roast pan of Caramel Pop Corn to share.
This is the recipe my Mom always used
this Christmas time treat:
2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 Cup Butter
½ Cup Corn Syrup
Boil the above ingredients for 5 minutes then remove from heat.
Add: 1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
Pour over large roasting pan of popped corn. Bake at 250 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
There you have it - easy peasy!
I admit that it's not low-cal or lite or any of those things
but it sure is yummy and reminds me of
Christmases of long ago!
Maybe this is the "medicine" I needed to get me into the Christmas mood?
Till next time ............ what snack food reminds you of Christmas as a child?
