Sweet popcorn on the grill

Method

For the popcorn

  • Heat the barbecue.
  • Grease a 20 cm round baking pan with the olive oil and add the corn kernels.
  • Cover the surface of the pan tightly with aluminum foil and place it on the grilling surface of the barbecue.
  • Cover the barbecue with its lid and wait for 3-4 minutes until you hear the corn kernels popping.
  • Open the lid and put one more rack under the pan. This way, your popcorn will not burn. 
  • Cover with the lid again and wait 2 more minutes until all the corn kernels have popped.
  • Remove the pan from the barbecue, take the aluminum foil off, and transfer the popcorn to a bowl.

For the sweet popcorn

  • Place a pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add the butter, the brown sugar, the honey, salt, and mix with a wooden spoon for 3-4 minutes, until the caramel is ready.
  • Turn off the heat, add the baking soda, and mix until the mixture is foaming.
  • Pour the mixture into the bowl with the popcorn and mix with the wooden spoon.
  • Transfer the popcorn to a 20x30 cm baking pan lined with parchment paper, spread them well, and place the pan on the grilling surface of the barbecue for 30 minutes, mixing every 10 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the barbecue and set the popcorn aside to cool well.
  • Serve.
