Is This Kid Safe Popcorn?

There is a very small amount of bourbon in this recipe. The bourbon when cooked will completely cook out the alcohol. However, it will come down to personal preference whether or not you want your children to have it.

Tips for Storing Popcorn to Last Longer

You always want to seal your ingredients the correct way for longer shelf life. The easiest way to store this mix is in an air-tight container. You can also use a freezer bag and seal the bag to become air-tight as well.
