Vanilla Flavoured PopCorn Crunch

Popcorn is a type of corn which explodes and puffs up when the corn kernels are heated, this method of popping corn was discovered by Americans and its became a popular snack food especially in movie theaters..Corns are able to pop becauce of their kernels which have hard moisture sealed hull and dense starch filling this allows pressure to build inside the kernel until an explosive pop happens..Some consider it as a healthy food and its widely consumed in front of TV and while watching movies..I have a electric appliance to pop up the corn kernels which i get from supermarkets and i used to pop them at home as per our need..My lil ones usually ask me to prepare the same sweet and buttered popcorns we get from the movie theaters, to be honest i was planning to make out those crunchy and sweet popcorns loaded with butter and sugar eventhough its not healthy i just want to make out as my lil ones enjoy having them, finally i googled for this crunchy popcorns and i crossed here which seems quite easy and prefect for me which i prepared with less butter and replaced corn syrup with honey,finally i prepared a large bowl of pop corns and prepared this vanilla flavoured popcorn crunch..we loved it and the whole large bowl vanished within few hours and my lil one really enjoyed munching these crunchy beauties..



7cups Popcorns
3/4cup Brown Packed Sugar
2tbsp Butter
3tbsp Honey
1/4tsp Salt
1/2tsp Baking soda
1tsp Vanilla extract..

Preheat the oven to 200F and take the popped corns in a large bowl also arrange a baking sheet over a baking tray..Heat the sugar, butter, honey with salt in a pan, bring boil and simmer for few minutes until the sugar get well dissolved..remove the pan from heat and add the baking soda and vanilla extract..mixture will become foamy...add this foamy syrup to the pop corns, mix well until the pop corns get coated, dont worry if the corns didnt get well coated it will happens while baking..




Pour this over the baking sheet and bake for 40-45minutes (stir every 15 minutes)..remove the tray from the oven and break them slightly, conserve them in air tightened box and enjoy..

This is entirely a new recipe. I have eaten popcorn but never one with honey.

There was a person who used to come to our house once a month with a big plastic sack, transparent and filled with popcorns. The sack was too big and he was too tall to hold it on his head.

He used to give a big Aluminium utencil filled popcorns that costed 20 rupees. That were the days when we had enough to enjoy.

Gone are those days... and I feel like good for nothing food after I started working. I often plan to go home and have a montherly food but thats too far and too ned to take two flights to reach there.

mm... will try the popcorn recipe if I can get some time ... say during weekends.

I was expecting something from you using popcorn. This is a great one Priya. But does it need 40-45 minutes?

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

Thanks friends..

@Madhuram, actually the original recipe goes for an hour but mine was prefect at 40minutes, this helps to caramelise the popcorn..

I should try this one. The one I make has loads of butter in it that I am afraid to make it. I can't resist caramel popcorn at all.
