Popcorn Tasting Trio

popcorn trio

Ohh how sophisticated it sounds – a tasting trio.   Because it’s a shared joy for Doug and I to take a highbrowed approach to mere peasant treats, we have created a delectable culinary experience for you all.   Kidding ….. I love popcorn and Doug has learned to share my love of this microwavable delight.

We popped a few bags (the lazy approach) and then seasoned for three different flavors!  We highly recommend any or all of the following be enjoyed with a healthy sized glass of vino.

Frenchified Popcorn

Sauté the crushed garlic and butter then add the popcorn, tossing to coat.  Remove from heat and season generously with salt and herbs de Provence.

We really enjoyed this one, it was the least overpowering of the flavors and would be the perfect accompaniment to a movie or hockey game.

Maple Pecan Popcorn

Line the bottom of a pan with foil and toss popcorn with pecan pieces.  In a heavy sauce pan, melt butter and add maple syrup and salt.   Bring to a boil (w/o stirring) for about 15 mins.  Pour syrup over the popcorn/pecans and cool completely.

This one was sweet and delicious.  It also stores better than the other combos.

Parmesan Pepper Popcorn

This one is pretty self explanatory – just toss everything together!  We upped the salt and pepper amounts and tossed it in a saucepan to try and melt some of the parm.  This combo was the least unique in taste, but still a good twist on regular popcorn.

    Popcorn! How interesting. I never would’ve thought to try different variations. I heard once that kids in colonial America used to treat it like we now treat popped rice: as cereal, with milk and brown sugar.
