CARAMELIZED POPCORN 😋
- Advertisement -
1 cup of popcorn kernels (for 2 or 3 people)
Olive, sunflower or corn oil
1 cup of sugar
- To begin, pour the oil into the pan until it covers the bottom of the pan, but taking care not to overdo it. Bring to medium heat and wait until it is very hot, once hot, add the popcorn kernels, making sure that you are not adding too many because there must be space in the pan for the popcorn to burst and you can caramelize it later. It is very likely that you will have to prepare your sweet popcorn in two or three batches, everything will depend on the size of your pan.
- Once you have placed the beans in the pan, cover them until they pop, be careful and wait until they have almost all popped before opening the lid. At that time you must add the proportional part of sugar with respect to the amount of grains you have added and start stirring so that the sugar covers all the popcorn. Make enveloping movements while the heat caramelizes the sugar. Once the popcorn is caramelized, remove the pan from the heat and place it in a container.
- Repeat the process as many times as necessary so that you can prepare the entire cup of corn kernels. Remember that it is very important to work over medium heat and never high and keep stirring once you add the sugar to get a good caramelization.
