How do I make Easy Caramel Popcorn? With my recipe here you can make homemade popcorn with butter and salt, caramelized popcorn candy with salted caramel, barbecue, but also with flavors you like, with various herbs and spices like paprika and even cheese. To make perfect homemade popcorn, we need a thick, medium-sized saucepan with a lid. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium to high heat.
Shake the pan to coat the base with the oil. When the oil is burned pour 3-4 corn crumbs and wait for them to pop and open. Once the tasting popcorn has opened, we throw the rest of the corn in a row. That is to say, make a thin layer on the bottom of the pot. Stir in all the corn oil. Put a lid on the pan and pull it out of the heat and wait just half a second.
Then we put the popcorn back on fire. They wait a bit and all of a sudden they start to crack and open at the same time in just a few seconds. Put the lid sideways to allow steam to pop out and breathe to make it more crisp when opened. As they crack and make noise, we shake the pot to help them open.
When the noise from the corn cracks stops and the roar subsides, in a matter of seconds, the pan is ready. It means everything is open. Immediately pour into a large bowl.
