Carmel Popcorn

We recently discovered a super-yummy popcorn recipe from  We have made it twice, and our family has fallen in love with it.  Instead of processed sugar, it uses honey, which is perfect!  We adapted her recipe yesterday for our air popper, and it turned out great.

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
5 Tb butter
1/3 cup honey
Salt to taste

Pop the popcorn and add a couple handfuls of raisins.  Next time we are going to try broken banana chips and walnuts.
In a saucepan, warm butter and honey and mix thoroughly.  Drizzle over the popcorn and stir.  Add salt to taste.  We love Farley's salt, available at  Farley is my dad.  :o) 

Yesterday we forgot to add the salt at first, and when we started eating it was too sweet.  The salt makes a BIG difference.  This popcorn is very sticky/greasy, so be prepared for that.  I tried putting some of it in the fridge for awhile, and that seemed to help, but good luck having enough leftovers after the initial plunge.  It is REALLY yummy.  My husband doesn't care much for popcorn, but he loves this stuff.

My children love making popcorn with me.  We always sing Popcorn Popping as soon as the kernels start to pop.  I let them pour the kernels into the popper, and add the raisins.  My son loves to spray the salt.  This is a great "snack time" treat to involve the little ones.  Give everyone their own bowl or plate, because there will be a lot of finger licking!
