Popcorn Lovers

Here are two recipes for all of you popcorn lovers. One is for ‘sweet and salty’ popcorn and the other is a ‘spiced’ popcorn formula. Rather than head to the theatre for a bucket of their buttery goodness, head to the kitchen! Make a batch of your own variety and take it outdoors for thepopcorn1 evening. Head to the ball field. Watch the sunset. Look for meteor showers. Get outside and enjoy the beauty of summer!

Sweet & Salty

1/3 c. corn kernels

2-3 T. oil

4 t. sugar

1 spoon of water

2 T. butter

Salt to taste.

Begin to pop the corn as usual. While it is popping, in a small saucepan dissolve the sugar in the water over low-med heat. When nearly dissolved, add the butter and stir as it melts. Are you watching that popcorn? When it’s done, turn off the heat and leave the lid on the popcorn. When the liquid sweetness is ready, remove the lid from popcorn and pour the butter mix over it. Turn the heat on very low and toss for a few minutes (to dry the sugar mix on the popcorn). Salt to taste. Yummm. It’s very good!

Spiced Popcorn

½ c. popcorn kernels

2 t. chili powder

1 t. oil

½ t. garlic powder

¼ t. salt

Pop the corn. Mix the remaining four ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour over the popcorn and mix well to coat. Enjoy!
