Haven't tried our Big Mushroom Popcorn yet? You'll love this Hoosier Hill Farm favorite. Mushroom popcorn varies from other popcorn in that it pops into a fluffy ball shape instead of a "butterfly" shape. This makes it perfect for candy or cheese coatings.

Be sure to follow the recommended popping instructions to get the most out of your Mushroom Popcorn!

Stovetop method: Use 3 Tablespoons coconut oil per every 4 oz. unpopped kernels. Place oil and 3 unpopped kernels in your popper over medium heat. Oil temperature of 450F degrees works great. When all three kernels pop, add the rest of your unpopped kernels quickly and proceed with popping. This method ensures that the moisture in the kernels turns to steam quickly instead of heating and escaping slowly.

If you use a hot air popcorn popper, do not add the popcorn until the popper has run fully for at least 1 minute. Only then add the popcorn. Do not even add the popcorn to the little holder cup that some hot air poppers use as it just dries out the popcorn, reducing it's "popability". PLEASE NOTE: Depending on the brand and age of your hot air popper, you may need to let it run and heat up for up to 5 minutes.

Celebrate the Harvest Season with Hoosier Hill Farm!
Celebrate the Harvest Season with Hoosier Hill Farm!

Hoosier Hill Farm recently harvested our 2016 crop of Mushroom Popcorn! Mushroom Popcorn pops differently than other varieties in that it pops into a puffy round ball, perfect for caramel, cheese, and candy coatings.

For each Harvest-time gathering, including Thanksgiving, serve and enjoy home-made caramel corn with Hoosier Hill Farm's Mushroom Popcorn.

First, to get the most pop out of your Mushroom Popcorn, follow these popping instructions:

Stovetop method: Use 3 Tablespoons coconut oil per every 4 oz. unpopped kernels. Place oil and 3 unpopped kernels in your popper over medium heat. Oil temperature of 450F degrees works great. When all three kernels pop, add the rest of your unpopped kernels quickly and proceed with popping. This method ensures that the moisture in the kernels turns to steam quickly instead of heating and escaping slowly.

If you use a hot air popcorn popper, do not add the popcorn until the popper has run fully for at least 1 minute. Only then add the popcorn. Do not even add the popcorn to the little holder cup that some hot air poppers use as it just dries out the popcorn, reducing it's "popability". PLEASE NOTE: Depending on the brand and age of your hot air popper, you may need to let it run and heat up for up to 5 minutes.

Next, to make the caramel coating, mix in a pan 7 oz of salted butter, 17 oz of brown sugar, 10 oz of corn syrup and boil for around 5 min. After that add a teaspoon of baking soda, it will get the puffy consistency instantly.

Finally, drop the caramel coating on the popped corn and mix it carefully so you wont break the popcorn. In an oven-safe container, put popcorn with coating in the oven on low heat for 10 min, take it out and stir it again, repeat the 10 min and stir process for about 4 times, or until thoroughly coated and crunchy.

Celebrate this Harvest Season with 20% off of your next order as a registered user. Use the coupon code HARVEST20 at checkout now through November 13th.

Thank you for choosing Hoosier Hill Farm for all of your Holiday needs!

Your Autumn Party will be a Hit With this Hoosier Hill Farm Candy Corn Popcorn Ball Recipe!
Your Autumn Party will be a Hit With this Hoosier Hill Farm Candy Corn Popcorn Ball Recipe!

With Autumn upon us, it's time to celebrate! Whether that be with a Halloween themed party or a Fall Festival, Hoosier Hill Farm has you covered with a treat to please everyone!

Hoosier Hill Farm Original Candy Corn Popcorn Balls

7 quarts popped Hoosier Hill Mushroom Popcorn
4 cups Hoosier Hill Farm Candy Corn
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Food coloring, optional

Directions:

First, to get the most out of your Hoosier Hill Farm Mushroom Popcorn, we suggest the following popping methods.

Stovetop method: Use 3 Tablespoons coconut oil per every 4 oz. unpopped kernels. Place oil and 3 unpopped kernels in your popper over medium heat. Oil temperature of 450F degrees works great. When all three kernels pop, add the rest of your unpopped kernels quickly and proceed with popping. This method ensures that the moisture in the kernels turns to steam quickly instead of heating and escaping slowly.

If you use a hot air popcorn popper, do not add the popcorn until the popper has run fully for at least 1 minute. Only then add the popcorn. Do not even add the popcorn to the little holder cup that some hot air poppers use as it just dries out the popcorn, reducing it's "popability". PLEASE NOTE: Depending on the brand and age of your hot air popper, you may need to let it run and heat up for up to 5 minutes.

The next step is to make the Popcorn Balls!

Place popped Hoosier Hill Farm Mushroom Popcorn in a large baking pan; keep warm in a 200° oven. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 235° (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat. Add the butter, vanilla and food coloring if desired; stir until butter is melted. Immediately pour over popcorn and stir until evenly coated. When mixture is cool enough to handle, sprinkle in Hoosier Hill Farm Candy Corn, and quickly shape into 3-in. balls. Lightly grease hands or dip hands in cold water to prevent sticking. Yield: 20 servings
