Salted Maple Popcorn Recipe

We tapped a few maple trees in the back woods during March, and since then have been using maple syrup in everything. Salad dressings, homemade cookie batter, marinara sauce, coffee, pie crust, meat marinades, veggie stir fry, you get the picture.

Our recent favorite is adding maple syrup to the pot when we make popcorn. Josh has perfected the recipe and it is the best popcorn I've ever tasted. His super easy recipe is below. Enjoy!

Salted Maple Popcorn
Popcorn kernels (enough to cover the bottom of your pot without overlapping kernels)
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt to taste

Turn your burner on to just under the highest setting (we use 7 or 8 on our electric stove). Pour syrup, olive oil, and kernels into a large lidded pot and place on the burner. Keep the lid on, and move the pot back and forth over the burner continually. Once your kernels begin popping turn the burner off but continue moving the pot. Remove your popcorn from the pot immediately once kernels have popped to prevent burning. Drizzle with olive oil and salt to taste.
