We all love popcorn. The smell, sound and taste of popcorn excites the senses. Popcorn gives a great sense of occasion. We mostly only ever eat popcorn when watching a film, which is pretty bizzar if you really think about it. With popcorn being so much cheaper to buy as kernels from the shops it seems ludacris to ever spend so much buying it at the cinema or in the nasty pre-seasoned packets. Why not make it ourselves.
Popcorn is cheap, VERY easy and fun to make.
- Chilli Flakes
- Toothpaste, if you like..
The list is endless..
- 50g Popcorn Kernels
- TBSP of Oil
- Your chosen topping
Add the oil to the pan on a medium heat. Wait for a min till the oil gets hot. Add the kernels. Pop on the pan lid. Leave for 1 min, shaking the kernels in the pan every now and then. Once you hear the corn starting to pop, shake the pan back and forth constantly, but still keeping it on the heat. The temptation to take the lid of is irresistible, but keep it on otherwise boiling hot kernels will pop in your face before you know it. Once the sound of popping slows, add the flavour of choice and shake vigorously with the lid on so that they are all coated. Transfer to a big bowl. Scoff once cooled. 50g is the perfect amount for two. if you want to make more, do it in batches otherwise it will burn on the bottom and you will end up like this..
