Orange Ginger Caramel Popcorn Balls

Pop 1.5 cups corn as you wish (we used the microwave). When warm, toss with butter and salt. Add thin slivers of orange zest and chunks of candied ginger. Set aside.

In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, warm
3 T butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp orange extract
a splash of freshly squeeze orange juice
1 t ginger powder
