Looking for a fun activity to do with the kids or on a rainy day? Stove top kettle corn is perfect for that! Add some maple syrup and you’ve got yourself a delicious treat!
- 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup popcorn kernels
- 1/3 cup of Polly’s pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- salt, to taste
Whisk together Polly’s pure maple syrup and the cinnamon, set aside. In a good sized pot on the stove, put your oil and start heating it.
Put a couple of popcorn kernels in the pot. Once these kernels pop, add the rest of your popcorn.
Quickly add your syrup and cinnamon mixture and cover. Keep the pot moving CONSTANTLY over medium high heat to prevent burning.
Once the popping slows down pull the popcorn off the heat and immediately dump it into a bowl to cool. It will be hot, so don’t eat or touch right away!
We also did this and made them a little spicy, to do this, omit the cinnamon, follow the same process, but once you have about half the popcorn popped, add some Maple Sriracha– cover and be careful! The air will get a bit “peppery” so be careful! Adding the Sriracha with the syrup didn’t work for us, as it basically cooled the oil off too much. But adding it when the popcorn was half done was fine!
