  • 10 cups air-popped popcorn
  • 1 cup lightly salted dry-roasted mixed nuts
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg

  • 2

    In a small saucepan, stir together the honey, orange juice, butter, orange rind and cinnamon until well mixed. Bring to a boil over moderate heat. Drizzle the honey mixture over the popcorn and nuts. Using a wooden spoon, toss until well mixed. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring twice.
