Maple Pumpkin Spiced Popcorn

When I was a little girl (about a million years ago) we made popcorn on the cook top. It was delicious salted buttered goodness. Perfectly wonderful in it’s simplicity! But with fall in the air…(ok I am lying, fall is no where near the air in Southern California but I hear of mythical places where the leaves turn colors and temperatures cool down).. I bring you Maple Pumpkin Spiced Popcorn!

How We Make it!

This popcorn is made the way we made popcorn when I was a kid, on the cooktop with real, natural ingredients. No rancid oils, no genetically modified corn, no toxic plastic microwave bags. Just real corn, real butter from grass fed cows, flavorful spices and real maple syrup. This seasonal dessert will made my house smell heavenly……and it tasted like heaven too. I should know. I ate a little. Okay, I ate it all. Don’t judge me. How could I resist the perfect combination of sweet maple, pumpkin spice and sea salt?
