We recommend making our sweet, salty, crunchy snack with J.Q. Dickinson's Heirloom Popping Corn and Royal Fuzz Bee Co.'s Raw Estate Honey.

Yields

6 cups

from The Local Palate Kitchen 

Ingredients

2 tablespoons coconut oil

½ cup J.Q. Dickinson Heirloom Popping Corn

6 ounces butter, unsalted

1½ cups light brown sugar

6 tablespoons Royal Fuzz Bee Co. Raw Estate Honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¾ teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

6 slices Benton’s bacon, sliced into ¼-inch strips and cooked

½ cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted

Himalayan salt to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Pour coconut oil and popcorn into a large rondeau (a wide, round, heavy-bottomed, somewhat shallow pot) with a tight-fitting lid, and set over medium heat. Place lid on the pot and let pot sit over heat until popcorn begins popping. Gently shake the pan until popping stops.
  3. Carefully remove the lid from the pan and pour popcorn onto 2 sheet pans. Remove any unpopped kernels.
  4. Place sheet pans in oven to keep warm.
  5. Combine butter, brown sugar, honey, vanilla, and kosher salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and add baking soda. Stir gently with a silicone spatula.
  6. Remove popcorn from oven. Scatter half the bacon and pecans over each sheet pan and then pour half the brown sugar syrup over each pan.  Use a silicon spatula to combine syrup, popcorn, and nuts. Sprinkle popcorn with Himalayan salt.
  7. Place sheet pans in a 250-degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove sheet pans from oven and toss popcorn, breaking up any clumps. Sprinkle again with Himalayan salt and return to oven for 45 minutes. Remove sheet pans from oven and again toss popcorn to remove any lumps. Let cool before serving.
