  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch fresh nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon salt - I like salty-sweet combinations, but leave it out if you're not a fan


  • Pop the popcorn following your preferred method. Combine the cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  • Melt the butter either in the pan or in the microwave and whisk in the maple syrup. Drizzle this over the fresh popcorn, stirring the popcorn as you pour to make sure it gets evenly distributed.
  • Sprinkle half the spice mixture over the popcorn, cover the bowl with a dinner plate, and shake vigorously. Taste the popcorn and if you'd like more spice, add the other half of the spice mix and shake again. Eat immediately!
