Rich Homemade Caramel Popcorn

A homemade caramel popcorn snack idea that shockingly buttery, rich, salty, sweet, and one of the easiest popcorn recipes you can think of. A homemade popcorn that is better than any store-bought snack at a fraction of the price! A delicious afternoon snack that you can serve to your family.

There are a few common mistakes to avoid while making that popcorn you love. Many people want to be efficient when making popcorn. Hence, they tend to dump all of the kernels into one pan and let it pop. This technique causes a problem as it ends up burning the kernels that popped previously. If the recipe calls for 1 cup of corn kernels then, divide the cooking process into 2.

Oil is another essential part of the cooking process. Choosing the right oil is key to successful popcorn. Oils such as olive oil, walnut oil, and other unrefined oils are a no-no for this recipe. High smoking point oils such as almond oil, corn oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, peanut oil, safflower oil, and vegetable oil are the best to use when making popcorn

You can add different flavors to the caramel mixture. Adding a few cinnamon sticks or a teaspoon of anise seeds to the sugar at the beginning will add a nice kick that will elevate the flavor of the caramel and the popcorn. Lavender lover? Well, throw some dried lavender into the caramel to infuse flavor and aroma. Cardamom pods are also a great addition to the caramel sauce; just make sure to strain it after infusing.

Blood Orange Tart Recipe

Looking for a blood orange tart recipe? Look no further as this is the perfect dessert recipe to end an awesome family lunch or dinner. A zesty and sweet-tart recipe that compliments a summer grill party.

You can use a few different kinds of fats for the pie crust— such as butter, lard, or shortening. But, the taste of the butter is much better than any other type of fat. To make a perfect and flaky crust, make sure that your butter is cold and your water is ice water.

As for the Swiss meringue, do not separate the egg whites directly into your mixing bowl. You need to make sure that you don't get even the slightest amount of yolk on your egg whites. Yolks and water are the most common enemy of a great Swiss meringue. It will prevent aeration and will ruin the whole batch of whites.

Filling:
5 large egg yolks
6 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup blood orange juice
2 tablespoons butter
1 zest of lemon
Meringue:
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
5 large egg whites
Crust:
2 cup AP flour
¼ tsp salt
½ cup frozen butter
1/2 cup cold water

Cornbread is ancient food that originated in the Americas. Native Americans used corn for almost everything. And one of the best creations is the humble cornbread.

Over the years, the flavor of cornbread has evolved. The texture is much changed from the time when cornbread just crushed corn kernels, water and fat. One great leap forward in texture was the super-hot cast-iron skillet. It is an essential tool to create a nice crispy and well-baked cornbread.

Cornbread making has evolved from a necessity to something that people love. It is now considered a delicacy and a common side for classic southern dining.

This cornbread recipe is exactly what you want from cornbread — rich corn flavor with a hint of buttery flavor. It's absolutely perfect. But if you want to add additional flavor, you can add some cheddar cheese, pickled peppers or bacon bits to this recipe. You could even add some cranberries and nuts.
