Sorghum Caramel Corn

The ultimate combination of salty, sweet and crunchy. This recipe makes quite a bit, but is so easy!! My mom grew up making caramel corn for her family regularly, and we’ve been playing with our favorite family recipes, using sorghum in place of things like corn syrup, maple syrup, honey, and some of the white or brown sugar, with delicious results! Warning: this caramel corn is seriously addicting!
