A simple fun recipe for Sweet & Salty Popcorn snack. As you are making it yourself you can choose the quality of the ingredients so that you know exactly what goes into the snack. Choose real butter, organic coconut oil, raw honey (full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants), organic popcorn kernels and sea salt.
Serves 2 – 4 people
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
4 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey (preferably raw)
1 tbsp (or more) butter, to taste
1/8 – 1/4 tsp sea salt, to taste
To make popcorn, you’ll need a large pan with a tight-fitting lid. Heat the pan with a little coconut oil, then add some corn kernels, cover and heat. The kernels will swell and start to ‘pop’, bursting out of their skins. Once the popping sound dies out, remove the pan from the heat and carefully remove the lid.
Use a heavy-based pan to make popcorn so that the kernels in contact with the surface of the pan don’t burn during cooking. Fill the pan only one-quarter full of corn kernels and never more than one-third full, as the kernels expand in volume considerably when they burst and need room to fully ‘pop’.
Meanwhile, melt the honey and butter (or coconut oil) together on the stove in a small pan over low- to- medium-low heat.
When the popcorn is done, pour the butter/oil and honey mixture over the popcorn and toss to coat.
Sprinkle the popcorn with sea salt and toss to coat it evenly.
This treat is sticky and delicious. Popcorn takes best when freshly made so eat as soon as possible!
