Hold your horses now, don’t get all worked up, I’m talking about HOMEMADE caramel popcorn, not the average store bought kind. My mother makes the absolute best caramel popcorn. We’re talking carmel popcorn so good that she gifts it to family members and family friends in large glass jars with a standing agreement that upon completion, it can be returned, and re-filled. And refilled. For FREE. Now that is generosity!
It’s always around thanksgiving that she makes a huge batch so we can all be snacking before meals, during meals, and after meals (or maybe sneaking a handful in the middle of the night…shhh, don’t tell!). The popcorn is literally good anytime, but fresh out of the oven is absolutely divine. It’s warm and ooey-gooey, and it takes serious self control to not run at full speed with the pan to a secluded corner of the house and eat the whole thing.
