Salted Ghee Caramel Corn

Popcorn parties are the best parties, especially when made with Organic Valley Ghee! Ghee is the ideal fat for making stovetop popcorn because it has all of the rich, nutty flavor of browned butter, but none of the milk solids. This gives it a higher smoke point than most cooking oils, and keeps it friendly for the lactose-intolerant, too.

6-8 servings
Popcorn Kernels
10 cups popped popcorn
Popcorn Kernels
6 tbsp Organic Valley Ghee
Small bowl of brown sugar.
¾ cup light or dark brown sugar
Small bowl of brown sugar.
¼ cup honey
A small bottle of vanilla extract.
½ tsp vanilla
A small bottle of vanilla extract.
¼ tsp baking soda
Coarse Sea Salt
½ tsp salt
Coarse Sea Salt


Preheat oven to 250°F and line a large baking sheet with a silpat mat or parchment paper (if using parchment paper, use a light colored pan and reduce the oven temperature to 200°F). Put popcorn in a really large bowl.
Combine ghee, brown sugar, & honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla & baking soda.
Pour caramel sauce over the popcorn and stir until the caramel is evenly distributed.
Evenly spread the caramel popcorn over prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool. The popcorn will crisp up as it cools. Add more salt to taste.
