Recipe courtesy of Pure Canada Maple

Ingredients

  • 5 Cups lightly salted air-popped popcorn
  • ½ Cup pure Canadian maple syrup
  • 5 slices of bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon bacon fat (reserved from pan)

Directions

Fry the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Then, move the cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving 1 tablespoon of bacon fat from the skillet. Once the bacon has cooled, crumble it into small pieces.

Using a large mixing spoon, lightly coat the inside of a bowl or casserole dish (large enough to hold the popcorn) with the reserved bacon fat. Combine the popcorn and bacon in the greased bowl and set aside.

Pour the maple syrup into a heavy-bottomed, non-reactive saucepot over medium-high heat. Bring the syrup to a boil and then reduce heat to medium low and continue boiling until it reaches 236 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Drizzle the hot maple syrup over the popcorn. Working quickly, stir with a greased mixing spoon until all the popcorn is coated with maple syrup.

Cool and store in airtight containers in the fridge. Or, enjoy immediately!

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
