10, 2, and 4


Over at Two Sleepy Mommies, they're talking about the terrible effects of High Fructose Corn Syrup. And how it's in everything. After learning the delightful news that there's a Coca-cola in the world that still uses Cane Sugar, it got me thinking that I should share a little secret with those of you who love the taste of Dr. Pepper.


Over in Dublin, they still make Dr. Pepper, nectar of the Texas gods, with Cane sugar. It is cool, crisp and refreshing. It's much better than the stuff with HFCS. Actually, once you take HFCS out of your diet, you'll find that real sugar in anything tastes better than things made with HFCS.

While I'm on the subject of sugar, I may as well share a recipe I found for Kettle corn. Yes, you can get it in the microwave packages now, but I'll always believe that anything that takes more time to do usually tastes better anyway.

1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup popcorn kernels

Heat a large pot over medium heat. When hot, add oil, popcorn and sugar and cover. Shake the pot constantly to keep the popped kernels from burning, and try to leave the lid slightly opened to let steam escape. Once popping has slowed down, remove from heat. Add salt. Wait to cool, or otherwise burn yourself with napalm hot sugar.
