Kilner Rocky Road Popcorn Makes Movie Nights Magical

Kilner Rocky Road Popcorn Makes Movie Nights Magical

One of the best things about winter is being able to snuggle up on the sofa to watch festive movies.

Gather your loved ones together for a night worth staying in for.

Bring down a duvet, make the popcorn and put a movie on.

Rocky Road Popcorn

Ingredients

-50g salted butter

-70g popcorn kernels

-60g milk chocolate, melted

-65g mini marshmallows

-65g malted chocolate balls

Method

-Melt the butter in a large, deep pan that has a tight fitting lid. Add the popcorn kernels and stir to ensure each one is coated in butter.

-Turn the heat down to low and place the lid on the pan. Leave to cook until you hear popping. Do not take the lid off the pan. Leave until the popping sound begins to slow down.

-Holding the lid down, shake the pan gently to avoid the popcorn burning at the bottom of the pan.

-Remove from the heat and leave the lid on for a few minutes.

-Spread the popcorn out onto a baking tray and drizzle with melted chocolate. Leave to set.

-Next add the marshmallows and malted chocolate balls and combine.

-Fill into Kilner jars as gifts for friends and family or a cheeky snack.

Kilner Jars are Frightfully Good for Halloween

Kilner jars are perfect for Halloween crafts and decorations.

This Halloween, serve up some pumpkin chutney in cute Kilner jars:

Pumpkin Chutney

by Kevin Chambers-Paston October-6-2014

http://www.thecraftylarder.co.uk/

Based on a classic mango chutney, this is sure to go down a storm with a curry at Halloween!

Ingredients

• 1kg pumpkin or butternut squash, diced (prepared weight) • 1 medium onion • 1 inch piece ginger, grated • 3 cloves garlic, grated/crushed • 500g sugar • 1 tsp salt • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes • 3 cardamom pods • 5 peppercorns • 250ml cider vinegar • 1 tsp black onion seeds

Instructions

1. Crack the cardamom pods open to remove the seeds and discard the shells. Grind the seeds, together with the chilli flakes and peppercorns then toast in a preserving pan or other large heavy-bottomed pan until warm and fragrant.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients except the sugar to the pan along with 250ml water and simmer over a medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add the sugar to the pan and stir until completely dissolved. Leave to simmer for a further hour, stirring every now and then. If the chutney looks too dry, add a little extra water. If too watery, simmer for longer.

4. The pumpkin should be tender at this stage, so now you can decide the texture of the finished chutney. Left as it is, it will be fairly chunky but if you want it to be completely smooth, use a blender to puree it. I wanted it somewhere in the middle, so used a potato masher to break down some of the chunks but left some in.

5. Pot up into sterilised jars and leave to cool completely. Store for 2 weeks or so before eating to allow the flavours to mature.

Details Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 1 hour 30 mins Total time: 1 hour 45 mins Yield: Around 1l of finished chutney

Make mummified Kilner jar lanterns for the little ones.

Mummy Lantern Jars

by Kevin Chambers-Paston October-12-2014

Cute mummified lanterns, great as a Halloween display or a party centrepiece.

Materials

• 1l Kilner Jar • A stretch bandage (approx 5cm x 4m stretched length) • A pair of googly eyes • 1 teabag (optional) • Fake blood (optional) • Craft glue

Instructions

1. If you want your mummy to have a stained effect, brew the teabag in a small amount of boiling water and allow to cool completely. Dip the bandage in the tea and squeeze out the excess before unravelling and leaving to dry.

2. Starting at the bottom, wind the bandage up the jar until it is completely covered. Tuck the top and bottom in, the tension of the bandage should keep it in place.

3. Add the googly eyes with some craft glue and leave to dry.

4. If desired, fake blood can now be added. You could also dab or rub the bandage with the teabag to develop some darker staining.

5. Leave to dry completely before popping in a battery-operated tealight and enjoy!

Happy Halloween Love Kilner

Kilner Autumn Craft Inspiration

Image taken from Red Ted Art’s Blog

I love taking long walks in the countryside in autumn and kicking through all the beautiful fiery leaves. This is where I found the inspiration for the next autumn idea:

Kilner Autumn Leaves Lamp

Simply select a handful of beautiful autumn leaves, dry them out and decoupage your Kilner jar. Now drop in a tea light.

Remember to make a wish when you blow it out!
