Garlic Popcorn

¼ cup butter + 8-10 large garlic cloves

Thinly slice garlic. On low heat, stir the garlic and butter with a small metal or wooden spoon. Be very attentive, as it burns easily. Brown until the garlic is a nice golden brown. Pop one popper of popcorn. Pour garlic mixture all over the bowl of hot popcorn. Optional: When hot, sprinkle liberally with Parmesan cheese for added goodness.

Low Salt Popcorn

We also just love a salt free popcorn snack by popping on the stove top using our hand crank popper and then sprinkling on Parmesan cheese.

Popcorn Crunch

½ cup melted butter

½ cup honey

1 tsp. cinnamon

3 qt. popped corn

1 cup chopped nuts

Blend butter, honey, and cinnamon. Heat until well blended. Pour over popcorn/nut mixture and mix well. Spread over cookie sheet in thin layer. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until crisp.
