maple caramel corn
Happy Valentine's Day 2 weeks early!! If you've got a crunchy locavore lover, I'd recommend making them maple caramel corn. Note: you could also make maple caramel corn any regular day of the week.
I used a recipe that I got in the mail from my friends Kate and Ben. You'll have to find one on the internet. My friends' recipe calls for popcorn, maple syrup, honey, butter, vanilla extract, salt, and black pepper. In terms of local ingredients, I was able to use local popcorn and local honey. The maple syrup was not local BUT it was connected. It was harvested from a friend's parent's property back in New Hampshire. How cool is that?!
