Caramelized Popcorn

Sweet popcorn is so delicious. During the festival of São João, it’s usually eaten caramelized or just with melted butter and salt. It doesn’t really matter – it’s yummy either way.

Sweet popcorn always reminds me of when my aunty used to come from the country to my mum’s house. She would make it for me and my brother, so we would spend the whole day eating sweet popcorn.
