The Hangover

I have to admit, this was the first time I had seen The Hangover. The things we do for our friends!

A lot happens, there's probably a lot of directions one could potentially go flavor wise... but after much deliberation, I decided it all started with those shots of jagermeister on the roof.

Jager is very...licori-ishy... and some people love that and others, like me, aren't huge fans.

How to make it a little more yum? Carmel seemed like a good idea :) Now, it's fairly easy to add spirits to caramel but I'm prego so we are going to improvise on the flavor for now, imitating the Jager instead.

So here is a rather simple recipe for a movie in which a whole lotta crazy goes down.

The {Four} Best Friends
Jagermeister-Carmel Corn
3 T coconut oil
1/2 c. popcorn kernels

1/8 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp orange zest
1/16 tsp ground anise seed
2 T caramel (or more if you really like your caramel)

DirectionsAdd the oil and popcorn kernels to a heavy 3- to 4-quart saucepan with a lid. Shake the pan to coat the kernels with oil. The kernels should cover the bottom of the pan in a single layer.

Cover the pan and place it over medium high heat. When the corn begins to pop, lift it slightly from the heat and shake the pan every so often (does not have to be continuous), holding the lid in place, until the popping begins to slow, about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour into bowl or bag big enough to toss further ingredients.

Heat caramel sauce in microwave until melted, about 15-30 seconds. Add ginger, orange zest, ground anise seed and salt to caramel and stir to mix. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn, stir to coat. (Place bowl in refrigerator or freezer to harden carmel faster, if you wish)
