Default Family Holiday Favorite

As a lot of you know, my Dad passed away early this year. He was the worlds biggest little kid at Christmas time. He truly embraced the spirit of the season by cooking and baking for family, neighbors and friends throughout the season. His carmel corn was something he shared with everyone. In his memory, I wanted to share this recipe with my Brothers. Make a batch and share it with your loved ones.


Carmel Corn

Pop 1 to 1 1/2 cups of corn and pick out the old maids. Divide up the popped corn into a couple of large roasters or 3-4 cake pans. Add peanuts or almonds or other nuts as you like.

In a sauce pan combine 2 sticks REAL butter, 1 lb (2 1/4c) brown sugar (light brown sugar will be more fiddle faddle, dark more like cracker jack) and 1/2 c light corn syrup (Karo). Bring this to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cook for 5 mins. Pour over popcorn, stir. Bake in a 275 oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 mins. Each time you stir, the mixture will be a bit less sticky and closer to the finished product.
Allow to cool, store in ziploc bags.

Happy Holidays,

KC

Thanks for that, Scott. Best holiday wishes to you and your family. I know the first one without a loved one is not easy. Been there twice in recent years. But it's a special time to recall the memories you'll carry the rest of your life.

KC, Thanks for sharing.

It always amazes me how much taste can bring a person back. Everytime I taste apple pie I think of my mother and the apple pies she makes. Whenver I taste maple candy, I think of my grandmother and how much she enjoyed it.

Your dad lives on everytime you think of him.

Made this recipe today. All I can say is top notch. Sweet, crunchy and not hard as a rock like the commercial stuff. I added a couple cans of planters cocktail peanuts.

Thank you KC

Kevin, Glad you liked it and you're right it is quite crispy compared to commercially available stuff. Be warned, it can be very addictive!!

Thanks to every one who's been kind enough to help me continue my Dad's tradition. It's certainly brought me a smile and I'm sure he is too.
