- Popping corn
- a little peanut or corn oil
- a handful of pecan nuts
- ready-to-use caramel sauce
If you want to make your own caramel:
- 75g fine sugar, 40g butter, 2 tbsp water, 4 tbsp cream, Fleur de sel
- Barbecook Junko
- Barbecook Popcorn pan
- 15 – 20 minutes
Both father and child-friendly, this is a recipe to try out during a fun day spent outdoors building a fire: popcorn. You heard right, popcorn! Of course, we will be pimping it with nuts and caramel sauce. Not a starred chef? No worries, this is completely fool-proof.
What could be more fun than watching a movie together with a big bucket of popcorn? Even better is lighting a fire on a blustery autumn day, putting a popcorn pan on the fire and making popcorn to enjoy together! Of course you can also do this in summer, while the sun is setting just before diving into your tent.
- An open fire and children? Remember: safety first! After all, burn injuries can hurt terribly.
- Although pouring ready-to-use sauce over popcorn and sprinkling it with nuts is something almost any child is old enough to do, actually popping the corn is a task for fathers.
- Popcorn is delicious with a little sugar, but you can easily pimp it according to your style and preferences: chocolate sauce, exotic spices or – like in this recipe – with caramel and nuts.
- Coarsely chop the nuts.
- Light the Barbecook Junko. Use a brush to grease the popcorn pan with a little oil. Pour in the popping corn.
- Place on the fire. Wait until the corn starts to pop. Shake regularly.
- Mix the popcorn with the nuts and caramel.
For the caramel makers:
- Use a Teflon pan. Melt the sugar and water into a light brown caramel.
- Stir in the cream. Blend in a few knobs of butter. Stir thoroughly. Be careful: this is very hot. Allow to cool slightly and transfer to a flask or store in a bowl in the refrigerator.
