Caramel corn

One of my favorite memories of my great grandmother was making caramel corn. This is her recipe, and it’s super crisp. She taught me how to make it – it’s one if the first things I ever cooked, although I haven’t made it in years.

Once, she made a batch and we laid it out to cool. Then we went to break it up with our fingers and save it. Somehow, every single kernel of that batch went to either her mouth or mine. We finished the whole thing. She winked at me and made another batch for everyone else. I still remember that conspiratorial wink.

To Frances Finley, caramel corn maker extraordinaire.
