Easter time brings so many beautiful memories to mind. I grew up in Boston and during Easter Sunday my family went to church in the morning. We would meet with family; aunts, uncles and cousins. After church everyone gathered in my parents home. My mom and aunt would cook while the kids watched cartoons. Can you relate to this setting? You will love our sweet and salty caramel popcorn recipe below.
The stories told, (most of which were repeated stories – year after year) the laughter, the music and food is as vivid to mind as if it was yesterday. Lovely memories that always bring a smile in my face. I loved those days and do my best to keep them alive in my home with the family we have near by and some added friends that feel like family.
When I was a kid we made homemade popcorn. We, means me. At that time we didn’t own a microwave, so the popcorn was made on the stove. I still, from time to time, make popcorn on a large pot on the stove top. This recipe is with popcorn made the old school way. You can still use a microwave if you wish, but I encourage you to try it at least once on the stove top and find out for yourself how easy it is.
Share with me some of your favorite Easter stories. Childhood stories or more recent ones. I love them all. What is your favorite Easter moment? For me is making popcorn on the stove and taking it to the living room where all the cousins would gather while watching cartoons. We loved all the Easter cartoons and movies. I can still close my eyes and see us all there, laughing, giggling and eating.
Have a lovely Easter weekend around family and friends. Fill your days with memories that will last a life time.
