Bacon Caramel Popcorn with Bacon Salt

We always have bacon fat around. We often give it away as a parting gift if you come over to our house. What to do with it? Well, it's the moisturizer that keeps us looking so young... or pop your popcorn in it. This is an adult Cracker Jack with bacon instead of peanuts...

Grind the bacon through the meat grinder attachment to your food processor. Place in a sauté pan and cook over medium-high heat; render until crispy. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat for cooking the popcorn.

In a pot with a lid, combine the bacon fat and popcorn over medium-high heat. When the first kernel pops, add the maple sugar and return the lid. Shake the pot while the kernels pop.

As soon as the popping has stopped, remove from the heat and place in a bowl. Toss with kosher and bacon salts.
