What type of popcorn to use

I have a secret to great popcorn that does not get stuck in your teeth! There is a variety of popcorn grown in Indiana called Lady Finger. It is a very small seed with hardly any hull. The kernels are small and full of flavor.

How to pop the popcorn

I use a hot air popcorn popper. Also, I feel the maple glaze sticks to a popcorn kernel better if it is hot air popped.

Add-ins for your popcorn

Try some of these fun add-ins to your maple popcorn.

  • Pecans
  • Peanuts
  • Chocolate covered peanuts or pretzels
  • Crisp bacon pieces

How far can this be made ahead?

Since this maple popcorn is covered in a sugary glaze it is best to serve right away. Be warned it’s finger-licking good or you might need a napkin.

How to store it

If you do have leftovers seal in an airtight container or ziplock bag. Use within a few days. You could freshen it up in a 250-degree oven spread on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes.

💭 Top tip

How to avoid sticking

After you coat the popcorn with the maple glaze, turn it out onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet to cool.
