October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month.
It’s also The Nibble’s unofficial holiday, Pumpkin Spice Month.
We’re very fond of this Maple Pumpkin Spice Pecan Popcorn recipe.
But here’s something simpler, Pumpkin Spice Popcorn that uses ingredients you already have in your kitchen.
It’s a sweet treat, with the added benefit of lots of fiber from whole-grain popcorn (the benefits of whole grains).
And it’s gluten-free!
In addition to out-of-the-bowl, you can use this sweet popcorn:
As a general dessert garnish.
Atop cakes or cupcakes.
With hot chocolate.
On oatmeal, instead of sugar.
With a Pumpkin Spice Latte, of course!
8 cups of popped corn
1/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons sugar

 How old is your cinnamon? Give it a sniff: If it isn’t redolent of spicy cinnamon aroma, it may be time to buy a new jar (photo © McCormick).
 We prefer to grate nutmeg each time we need some, in order to get the brightest nutmeg flavor. Buy some nuts (that’s why it’s called nut-meg) and try it (photo © McCormick).
