I wanted something to make popcorn
taste like Cracker Jack but am much too lazy to go through the whole
process of making a real candy coating. This works for me when I
have a yen for sweet popcorn.
It's also handy for perking up the occasional soup, stew, or pot of
beans that needs a dash of well-balanced not-cloying sweetness.
1 part molasses
2 parts honey
Warm the molasses and honey together in a small
pan or the microwave and stir to mix them thoroughly. The mixture
keeps forever, so I make up a pint at a time and keep it bottled in the cupboard.
When ready to make popcorn, warm up some popcorn sauce with a bit of
butter (proportions to match your taste or mood--I recommend about 2
tablespoons popcorn sauce to one tablespoon butter for about 6-8 cups
of popcorn) and bring it to a boil
to thoroughly mix it before pouring over popcorn.
Sprinkle with salt
if desired, and gobble it up before the popcorn gets cold.
