It’s still summer and the ice cream machine is back! Caramelized popcorn is one of the best American things ever. And how good isn’t salty caramel?

Salty Caramel Ice Cream with Caramelized Popcorns

6-8 servings

  • 1 dl/0,4 cups cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 dl/o,8 cup heavy cream
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 4 dl/1,7 cups milk
  • 2 dl/0,8 cup cream
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 dl/0,4 cup raw cane sugar or cane sugar
  • Less than ½ teaspoon sea salt

For the caramel: boil sugar and water to a light caramel. Take the saucepan off the stove and add the cream. Be careful not to splash over the edge, it’s very hot. Put the saucepan back on the stove, stir and simmer until all the caramel has melted. Take off the stove and let the caramel cool.

Split and scrape the vanilla pod. Boil milk, cream, vanilla pod and seeds in a stainless steel saucepan. Whisk yolks and sugar almost to a fluff. Pour the warm cream milk over the yolks in an even stream, whisk meanwhile and pour everything back into the saucepan. Simmer the mixture to 85°C/185°F or until it starts to thicken. Take it off the heat; do not let it boil. Add salt and caramel. Sieve. Pour the mass into a bowl and cool. Use an ice cream maker until it gets a creamy and solid texture. Put the ice cream in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours to make it easier to scoop. Serve with caramelized popcorns.

Caramelized Popcorns

  • 4 dl popped popcorns
  • 60 g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water

Pour sugar and water into a saucepan and boil to a light caramel. Quickly add the popcorns. Drop some lemon into the caramel and mix. Pour everything onto a baking sheet and separate the popcorns before they harden. Let them harden on the paper sheet and break into pieces.

  1. Actually you don’t need an ice cream machine, you could also put the bowl with the mixture in the freezer and stir every half hour until it’s frozen. It doesn’t make the ice cream really as smooth as if you have an ice cream machine, but it’s still delicious. Good luck!
