When it comes to snacking, we are devout popcorn fans. It’s quick to make,

travels well

We always toss the popcorn with melted butter or a drizzle of olive oil before adding any of the toppings. It helps the spices and herbs to stick to the individual kernels. In all cases, we use around a tablespoon of spice mix for a 6 cup batch of popped corn.

Herbes de Provence – Light and savory, perfect for an afternoon snack
Chili Powder – We love the spicy smoky flavor with the popcorn
Lemon Zest and Cracked Pepper – The zest gets so fragrant!
Chinese 5-Spice PowderWarm spices make this a sweet treat
Furikake – This Japanese seasoning is full of umami goodness
Nutritional Yeast – Sounds strange, but this adds a cheesy flavor!
Powdered Sugar – A quick version of kettle-corn
Browned Butter and SaltNutty and caramel-sweet, like a cross between kettle and caramel corn
