Winter Activities at Amil’s Inn

January 31st, 2014 by David Reeck

As many of you already know, we have been having an ‘old fashion’ winter in Western Wisconsin.  There has been an abundance of snow as well as cold.

For outdoor activities, the snow and cold makes for great snowmobiling, ice skating, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing.  The Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail is open to snowmobilers and is very well groomed.  In fact Wisconsin has 110 trails open to snowmobilers with 25,000 miles of well groomed trails.  Check out or for more information.

For those who would rather be inside, Amil’s Inn offers a great place for those that do scrapbooking, basket weaving, make a denim blanket, organize recipes or any other project that would need a warm and cozy place.

Hope to see you soon!

A fresh batch of Oven Caramel Corn is ready for devouring.

Amil’s Inn has many favorite recipes to share with our guests throughout the year.  One of our favorites for the Christmas season is Oven Caramel Corn.  In fact the “cookie” jar becomes a “caramel corn” jar. This recipe has been a family favorite for years. 

Oven Caramel Corn

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup butter

½ cup white Karo syrup

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

7 ½ quarts popped corn

1 cup dry roasted peanuts, optional

Cook brown sugar, butter, syrup, and salt for 5 minutes (If you want a more chewy caramel corn, cook less than 5 minutes).  Remove from stove, add baking soda, and add to popped corn.  Put in large roaster or dutch oven and bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes.  Stir every 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool.  Put in a plastic container and cover.

  Be aware, this recipe is addictive.  Enjoy!
