Lucia had the idea to make popcorn strings for the Christmas tree this year. I thought it was a wonderful, brilliant idea. We popped a ginourmous amount of popcorn, got some needle and thread, and proceeded to break every kernel. So then, I looked up online to see if we should let it get stale first. And while reading that yes, we should, Lucia came into my office crying because the dog ate her popcorn string (string and all). At that point, I noticed the warning that people who have dogs and cats should not make popcorn strings for their indoor trees because they will eat them. Well, live and learn.

FORTUNATELY, I also tried something else with the popcorn that worked out BRILLIANTLY and deliciously and that will be made and made again no matter the season (although, it does taste a bit like Christmas).

To make it:

Pop the popcorn and put it in a bowl. Melt some butter (more, not less). Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar (LOTS!). Add some salt. Toss and turn, and eat.

This could be a perfect party snack. Or it could be perfect eaten as an accompaniment to watching Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer for the 50th time. Or just because it tastes good and technically is not so bad for you, either—especially if you use organic ingredients!

    A local caterer makes cinnamon sugar popocorn for events and I’ve been wanting to recreate it for 2 years. I think it’s time.

    Sounds great! I wonder if you put the cinnamon and sugar in the popcorn if it’d be good like cinnamon sugar kettle corn.

    Sorry, I meant put the cinnamon and sugar in the popcorn popper (or pan).

    Ha! One of my Christmas firsts as a young adult was the making of a cranberry/popcorn garland for our little tree. As it does take quite a bit of time to string these midgets, I set my garland down to finish the next day. I was shocked to find the Christmas mouse/mice had found my offering and were very blessed to help themselves!
    Unfortunately, the wild birds, unlike you read in ‘the lore’, were not very interested in the after Christmas garlands set out for their supper!

    As far as I’ve ever seen, Swedes do NOT have much of a relationship with popcorn like we Americans do. They might have it at the movies. But otherwise, not so much. Isn’t that a shame?!? Ha. I LOVE this recipe of yours and wanted to assure you that I am doing all I can to get the Swedes to TRY it, because then I know they’ll love it, too. I served it today at our annual Golfer’s Glögg and even had one request for the recipe! Progress… slow but sure. 🙂
