Meghan’s Microwave Caramel Corn
1 or 2 brown paper bags
large microwaveable bowl/measuring cup
2 bags “light” microwaveable popcorn (too much butter, and the caramel won’t stick)
1 cup brown sugar
1/4c light corn syrup
1/2c butter
1/2tsp baking soda

1. Pop popcorn. pour out into large bowl so that the unpopped kernals fall to the bottom. move the popped kernals over to the paperbag. throw out the unpopped kernals.
2. In the large bowl/measuring cup, place sugar, corn syrup, and butter. Microwave on high, watch it, and when it starts to boil, microwave for a full 2 minutes.
3. Add baking soda and stir. (be prepared! it’s going to foam up and double in size!)
4. Pour caramel over the popcorn in the paper bag. Close bag, and shake vigorously while hitting the bottom of the bag. Use a spatula to stir the popcorn up occasionally as well.
5. Put bag in microwave and cook on high for 1.5 minutes. take it out and shake it.
6. Put bag in microwave and cook on high for 1.5 minutes. take it out and shake it.
7. Put bag in microwave and cook on high for 30 seconds. take it out and shake it.
8. Put bag in microwave and cook on high for 30 seconds. take it out and shake it.
9. pour it out on a cookie sheet and allow to cool.
10. EAT IT UP!!!!!

if you want to add nuts, put them in the bag with the popcorn. just be sure to REALLY Stir and shake them around so you don’t get nutty clumps.

    Another great episode Meghan. You should check out They say: Geek.Farm.Life is a weekly farm podcast from Indiana. Anyone interested in country living, small scale farming, spinning, knitting, gardening, cooking, or raising animals will be interested.

    My son-in-law the plumber, just had a heart attack listening to you clean your fleece. All that natural grease will clog up your plumbing big time. When the water hits the cold/cool drain pipes it cools off fast. The water does not stay hot enough to get it all the way through your pipes. Please find a way to do this outside, on the grill maybe where you can dispose of the dirty, greasy water somewhere besides down your pipes.

    Just want to save you a huge plumbing bill.

    i made the caramel corn
    oh my word–it’s amazing

    I didn’t have brown paper bags (and couldn’t go get any) so I just left the popcorn in my microwavable bowl with lid-and it worked. I had to reduce the time since it didn’t shake around as much–but it was AMAZING!!

    Meghan thank you for podcasting, I’m definately going to try this recipe. Here’s a funnny story for you. My son refers to his private parts as his “dingleberries” and his penis. I work at a hospital and tried telling him the correct name(s) of the anatomy. So far no luck they are still his “dingleberries” and his penis.

    I just about fell out of my chair when I heard the term dingleberries. I’ve never heard it in the fiber world but have heard it used in the military (it’s not a good thing). The basic term is still the same shall we say organic matter that is clinging to something. It’s also usually accompanied by the f word. I like your definition way better.

    Just thought I’d drop you a line, keep up the good work
