Author Notes: I'm always searching for a quick snack to whip up for when I have friends over last minute for football games, without missing a play! You can pull this recipe together in about 5 minutes yet it still seems to have a sophisticated touch with its sweet, salty, and herbal notes. Enjoy this gameday go-to, and go Buckeyes! —Emily | Cinnamon&Citrus
Makes: one large bowl
tablespoons unflavored oil (peanut, vegetable, canola)
cup popping corn
tablespoons melted butter
teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
generous pinch of salt and pinch of white pepper, to taste
- In a heavy bottomed skillet with a lid, large enough so your corn kernels are only one layer deep, heat the 3 Tbs oil with the popping corn over a burner on medium-high heat. Shake the pan gently and continuously and pull off the heat when your corn stops popping.
- Combine the honey, butter, and thyme, and pour over the finished popcorn off of the heat, shaking or stirring with a large spoon to coat. Add salt and white pepper to taste (about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper)..
