Popcorn… Last time I ate popcorn was 7 years ago in a cinema! I can’t recall the movie, but the popcorn was good. I like salty popcorn but it somehow isn’t the treat we choose to buy or make! We can live without popcorn easily.
Now with the kids, I’m looking for sugar-free treats that girls would love. Like carrots, nuts, and apples. On Helmī birthday I thought about popcorn… I didn’t make it, cause I can’t find corn kernels in local shops (imagine that!) and the only popcorn I found was sweet & salty caramel popcorn… that has loads of sugar in it.
Now. We are making popcorn at home almost every night. My mom found popcorn kernels in a local shop at Salacgriva and I bought popcorn maker that looks nice on a party table. Don’t ask… I saw this and fell in love even I don’t eat popcorn on regular bases… This maker makes popcorn using hot air. No butter or oil needed. Girls love air puffed popcorn and it’s better than other sweets. Nelle is very sensitive to sugar but also does have sweet tooth… Hard for her.
Those who look for something healthier should define what “healthy” means to them. For us – I ordered organic corn kernels online and have air-puffer! SO…. even I add a bit of melted butter and salt – it’s more than OK with us :).
