Took the lil' ones to Playgroup today, they had a ball. This is what I wore out:
Made some popcorn in the afternoon. I have been making this spiced kettle corn for years...since I first saw it on a Goop newsletter.
Yield: about 8 cups
¼ cup unsalted butter
1 tablespoon canola oil
½ cup corn kernels
3 tablespoons sugar (I use coconut sugar, but you can use white)
1 tablespoon raw sugar (courser sugar), optional
0.5 teaspoon kosher salt (I usually use Maldon, but used Fleur de Sel de Guerande today - and a bit less than listed here)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I usually use more, and just shake it liberally over the popcorn)
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg, optional
What to do:
1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat.
2. Once melted, add the oil, kernels and sugar stirring to ensure everything is well mixed.
3. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook on medium-low heat until kernels stop popping.
4. Be sure to shake the pot quite often to make sure the kernels are cooking evenly.
5. Remove from heat and immediately and pour into large bowl.
6. Add salt and spices, tossing to coat.
I am a huge popcorn fan, and have childhood memories of my mom making my sisters and I popcorn, putting them in a sheet of white paper rolled into a cone, and giving it to us on outings...Also, at the movies, it's more common to order caramelised popcorn than 'salt & butter' popcorn. Brazilians sure have a sweet tooth! As such, I practically never eat salted popcorn, and would pretty much never buy popcorn at the movies (here Down Under it's usually only 'salted'). So I make a batch, and 'smuggle' mine in, haha!
