How to make maple popcorn:
1. Grease a large bowl with butter or oil
Simply grease the inside of a large bowl butter or oil and set your bowl aside for the time being.
2. Heat up a medium sized saucepan
Next, head up a medium-sized saucepan and pour your 1/2 of cup of authentic Canadian maple syrup into your saucepan. Heat your mixture at a medium setting. Make sure to bring your maple syrup starts to boil. Once your maple syrup begins to boil, make sure to lower your heat setting to medium-low. As you don’t want your maple syrup to accidentally caramelize or burn.
3. Use a cooking thermometer to ensure that your maple syrup reaches 236 degrees Fahrenheit
Once your maple syrup reaches 236 degrees Fahrenheit, turn of your element. In order to prevent your maple syrup from burning.
4. Pour your nuts and your popcorn into your large bowl
Now it’s time to pour your nuts and popcorn into the large bowl which you greased earlier. If you’re allergic to nuts or have loved ones that are allergic to nuts, simply omit the nuts from your recipe. As maple syrup popcorn tastes just as satisfying without nuts.
5. Pour your heated maple syrup over your popcorn and nut mixture
Lastly, carefully pour your heated maple syrup all over your popcorn and nut mixture. Make sure to pour your maple syrup carefully over each side of your popcorn mix, to ensure that your popcorn is well coated. Remember, that the popcorn in the middle of your bowl should be covered in maple syrup sauce, not just the top layer of your popcorn mixture.
6. Store your maple syrup popcorn in airtight containers
Once you’ve let your maple syrup popcorn cool down a little, make sure to store all of the popcorn which you don’t eat immediately in an airtight container. So that your popcorn will stay fresh.
