Stringing Popcorn & Coconut Butter

When was the last time you strung popcorn?  1st grade right?  Do you remember it being hard?  I didn't either.  Actually, I didn't remember anything about it.  All I knew is we bought a tiny little Charlie Brown tree (got the most crooked one we could find at the Whole Foods) and didn't have anything to decorate it with.  Enter popcorn, 2 needles and 2 long pieces of thread.

About 86,547 needle pricks later, we got this:

We put a bird on it, of course.

Between that and ripping my hands apart climbing, I decided to embrace my inner hippie and whip up some coconut butter that Tracy from Shutterbean recommended.

This could definitely be all wrapped up pretty and given to someone for a certain holiday coming up in 9 days.  If you wanted.
Or you could keep it to yourself.  Your call.  It makes a great scrub for your hands and face, but you can eat it too!  Spread it on toast, fruit, veggies...

Recipe from Tracy Benjamin
3 c. unsweetened coconut

1.  Blend in a food processor, scraping down the sides every so often for about 10 minutes, or until it reaches the desired consistency.  That's it!  You're done!
