  • Summary

    Colt & Gray galloped onto the Denver dining scene in the summer of 2009. Since then, diners have lined up for the casual, pub-like atmosphere and the modern take on comfort classics (burgers, pork chops). One of the most delicious examples? The salty-sweet caramel corn studded with cashews and bits of bacon.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 6 ounces bacon, chopped
    • 1/2 cup unsalted raw cashews (one 2.5-ounce package)
    • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt or coarse sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1 oolong tea bag
    • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
