Can you store this out of the fridge? How long? I'd love to make gifts out of it but I'm not sure...

Hi! Thanks for asking that great question. Yes this can be stored outside of the fridge with no problem. First: Make sure the entire mixture has cooled COMPLETELY. Any warmth will create condensation as it cools inside a chosen storage container. So, be sure it cools completely before putting it in bags or tins or jars. Tip: Don't OVER cool especially if it is a foggy/rainy day - or it will pick up moisture. Second: Much of the length of storage time depends upon the moisture in the air and exposure to oxygen. If you have oxygen absorbers it will help prolong the shelf life to pop a tiny one in whatever you store it in. You can also vacuum seal jars (but I wouldn't suggest bags, because it may crush the popped corn) and help keep air/moisture out that way as well. Shelf life without much other than cooling and putting in a zip lock for us is usually a couple weeks - but often not much of it lasts that long. (o: Hope this helps! Best Blessings, Donna

Good to see honey being used for caramelizing popcorns. It is better than using sugar for the same. Honey is a healthier option.

Thanks for the comment! Yes, honey is much healthier and it makes the treat take on a completely richer flavor rather than just 'sweet'! Thanks again! Best Blessings, Donna
