This recipe is called My Amish Friend’s Caramel Corn, but sadly I have no amish friends, so I changed the title. To be honest, I have no idea what makes it “Amish” besides the fact that it originated from an Amish family.

Random Flashback/Tip: I remember being in high school home economics and making caramel corn; we shook the popped kernals in a brown grocery bag as opposed to stirring it in a large bowl.
So, when I made a store run to pick up the Karo Syrup I also politely asked for a brown bag on the side. This method worked out perfectly and eliminated part of the clean up, which is always a plus in my book!

I really loved this recipe and it stayed crunchy for days in an airtight container.

So, my thanks to the lovely Amish family that created this yummy snack! Enjoy!

    You know when in a tub of cinema popcorn, you find the odd piece that seems to have hoarded enough flavour to cover at least a dozen others?
    It’s like you’ve made an entire batch of those, and it’s wonderful!
