      Maple Sesame Glazed Popcorn


      8 cups popcorn
      1 1/2 tbs. sesame seeds
      1/4 cup maple syrup
      3 tbs. light brown sugar
      1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
      1 1/2 tsp. unsalted butter

      Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Lightly spray very large ovenproof bowl, preferably glass or ceramic, and baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Add popcorn to bowl. Place in oven to warm while preparing the glaze. Place sesame seeds in a small dish. Stir together maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon in small, heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring to boiling over medium heat; cook to hard ball stage (250 degrees on candy thermometer). Stir in butter and cook to hard crack stage (280 degrees on candy thermometer).
      Remove popcorn from oven. Pour about half of glaze over popcorn, working quickly and tossing with metal spoon to coat popcorn. Sprinkle on sesame seeds; pour on remaining glaze and toss until evenly coated. (If mixture cools down too quickly, warm in oven until softened enough to mix. Spoon onto prepared baking sheet and spread into small clumps. Cool.

      Can be halved or doubled.
      Makes 8 cups.
