Sweet and Salty Popcorn

Ingredients (enough for 4 people)

Paprika spiced popcorn for superbowl party recipes½ cup of pop corn kernels
3 tbsp vegetable oil
2tsp salt
2tsp brown sugar
2tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1 tsp paprika
3 tbsp unsalted butter melted

  • Tip the kernels into a pan, pour in the oil and half the salt (1tsp)
  • Cover the pan with foil – use serious heavy foil or do a double layer -  to make a lid and cut a few holes for the steam to escape
  • Hold the pan above the heat so that it gently cooks the kernels (about 3 minutes.)
  • (or make some plain microwave pop corn or buy a bag of ready popped plain pop corn)
  • Mix the sugar, the remaining salt (1tsp), the rosemary and the paprika into the melted butter and pour over the popcorn, stirring well.

This recipe originally appeared with a Shirley Temple cocktail some thoughts on mocktails I loved on family holidays.
