Recipe courtesy of the National Honey Board

Ingredients

  • Roughly ½ cup (depending on your pot) Popcorn kernels
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup honey, such as clover
  • 1½ tablespoons whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ tablespoon sea salt, large crystals

Directions

Add ¼ cup vegetable oil to a pot with a lid. Add 1 kernel of popcorn and cover the pot with the lid. Set heat to medium-high. When the kernel pops, add enough kernels to the pot so they cover the bottom of the pot in one layer. Close the lid and gently shake the pot. When the popping slows, remove from heat. In a large bowl, whisk honey, whiskey and vanilla together. Add popcorn and use a spatula to evenly coat. Pour the popcorn onto a silicone baking mat on a baking sheet. Sprinkle on sea salt. Place in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until the popcorn dries and develops a thin, crisp shell.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
