salted goods and other goodies


So I went on a little salt kick and made some salted pb and chocolate chip cookies from here and salted caramel popcorn. Oh my, both were pretty darn delicious, it's all about the salty sweet mix isn't it? It really is. It's probably one of my absolute fav's and I've made those cookies twice since. I just had to, they were getting eatin' up!

I guess I decided to get a little crafty too and label my cutlery jars which I just had to show you all. They are pretty self explanatory in their own right but who doesn't love a cute simple label? Totally easy too. Just some sticker letters stuck to the jar. I'm in love with it.
Oh and the prints below of the vintage knives and wooden spoons? Just a little something I've been working on. Like or dislike? I'm thinking about adding them to my shop.

salted caramel popcorn
recipe adapted from Jamie Magazine issue 13

70 ml peanut oil
60 g icing sugar
50 g popping corn
a big pinch of salt

heat the peanut oil and icing sugar in a heavy sauce pan over medium heat until the icing sugar turns a light golden caramel (the sugar will separate from the oil, so don't be alarmed), add the popping corn and mix well into the caramel. When the corn starts to jump pop the lid on the pan and leave for 3-4 minutes. Pour out into a bowl and sprinkle with sea salt.
