Guys, I am really excited! I am participating in the food matters project (you can click the link to learn more)! I like the idea of branching out and trying new recipes and coming together with a community of people who love good food as much as I do. I DO have to admit, however, that one of the first recipes I'm attempting for the project, Seasoned Popcorn, isn't much of a stretch for me.
I adore popcorn more than most people adore anything.
This isn't a joke. I've been a consistent popcorn lover since I was a kid. It is the #1 best ever snack choice ever, did I mention ever?, ever. I have enjoyed popcorn with butter and onion salt, popcorn with butter and salt, popcorn with butter and pepper and salt, popcorn of the kettlecorn variety, popcorn with caramel, popcorn with Jacqui's specialty, made just for Scott, popcorn seasoning, etc.
That said, I did try something new. Tonight Scott and I made popcorn and added to it:
butter, salt, pepper, cayenne, ginger and a splash of lime.
We didn't microwave or stovetop cook our popcorn. We might be the only people left on the planet who still own an airpopper and I'm okay with that. This combination of flavoring was delicious and I was shocked at how vibrant and flavorful it was, especially with the lime. Success!!!
