This has me buzzin’ these days:
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1/8 cup sugar
1 hefty pat of butter
Get a 2 qt. pot, this seems to be big enough but not too big for the job. Popcorn has an expansion ratio of 35/40:1, by the way… heat up that butter good ‘n’ hot, drop in the sugar- now move quickly- and drop in the corn just as it starts to carmelize & put a lid down on it. Now get to shaking! This will be easier if you have some upbeat music playing, but it’s not necessary.
The corn will pop fast, as soon as you hear the popping slow down, remove from heat. Promptly salt the corn & enjoy!
This simple recipe- with just a little work- beats out modern concoctions of trans-hydrogentated-cattywompus-polyester snacks. That’s inspiring.
