I want to end this week of popcorn with one more sweet option for your Super Bowl spread.
This popcorn recipe is Stuart’s favorite and the one he requests whenever we pop some popcorn for movie night.
Salted Honey Popcorn
- canola oil, enough to coat bottom of pot
- 1/2 C popcorn kernels
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp salted butter
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- Put canola oil in pot over medium high heat along with 2-3 kernels of popcorn. Cover and stand by. Once you hear the kernels pop, add the 1/2 C of popcorn. Cover and cook over medium heat until popping slows. Gently shake the pot during the popping process so as not to burn the popcorn at the bottom. Remove from heat and remain covered until popping has ceased, unless you want to be pelted with popcorn. (If you have another method of popping popcorn, feel free to use it.)
- In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt together butter and honey. Season with salt.
- Transfer popcorn to a large bowl. Pour the honey over top and gently mix until all the popcorn is coated with salty sweetness. (It won’t look like enough honey, but I assure you it is – keep mixing!)
