Nutty Caramel Corn
Preparation time : 20 to 30 minutes and 20 to half an hour for cooling
Yield : 8 servings
10 cups popped corn
11?2 cups granulated sugar
1?2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1?2 cup corn syrup
1?2 cup water
2 large spoons butter
one cup raw entire almonds
1?2 cup whole raw cashews
3?4 cup raw pecan halves
two little spoons salt
two teaspoons baking soda
1 wash a large stainless steel bowl with hot water and dry well ( this step is to heat the bowl ). Put the popped corn in a bowl.
2 mix the granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, and water in a heavy 6-quart frying pan and cook on middle heat with occasional stirring till the batch comes to boiling point ; place a lid on the pot for one minute to allow the sugar crystals to bathe down within the pan. Remove the lid, and clip a candy thermometer to the side of the pot without permitting the tip to touch the base of the pot. Continue cooking and stirring.
three When the temperature reaches 240 degrees, add the butter and almonds and continue stirring. At 270 degrees, add the cashews and continue stirring. At 285 degrees, add the pecans and cook to 300 degrees. Take away the mixture from the heat.
4 mix in the salt and baking soda ; then decant the mix over the popcorn in a stainless steel bowl and mix thoroughly with two hard rubber spatulas to cover absolutely. Spread the popcorn mix over aluminum foil, and break the clumps apart with your hands while wearing leather application gloves.
