Spicy-sweet curry popcorn

I’ve never had a sweet-and-salty curry combination, but this was pretty rad. Once again, I gobbled through this bowl of popcorn in no time and mentally added this to my list of movie-watching snacks. Spicy-sweet curry popcorn and maybe a bottle of dark winter ale? Absolutely.

Maple-cayenne popcorn

This popcorn was gone in a flash. If you’d like to slow yourself down, try offering this up with a bowl of nuts and dried cranberries on the side. Or just try not to be a snack monster like I am.

Buffalo-Parmesan popcorn

Buffalo sauce is my new favorite. (How have I waited so long to become hooked?) The sauce recipe I¬†include here tastes very authentic. I recommend using Frank’s Red Hot, if you can find it, and not another type of hot sauce, as the flavor is distinct. If you’d like to add an extra kick to the sauce, add 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper.

Buttered popcorn with panko, sesame, poppy seeds, and caraway

A toasted, buttered “everything” bagel was my inspiration for this popcorn. Can you tell?

Caramel-almond popcorn

These recipes require the line about storing in a sealed container for up to a week, but who, really, has that much restraint?

We LOVE popcorn. The snack was a staple in our apartment when we lived together, and we would often eat it while we watched movies with our favorite toppings (hot sauce for Sarah and Italian dressing for Caitlin). Caitlin and her sister Holly came up with a great way to test popcorn pairings: They pour various condiments and other refrigerator goodies into mini muffin tins so they can sample multiple combinations. Sarah’s dad taught her how to make popcorn over the stove before she moved into her first college apartment (see the video below for the how-to). She has it down to a near science now and often pops a big bowl right as company arrives.

We’re offering two new recipes to try this Popcorn Day, but also be sure to check out our previous popcorn recipes:

Asiago and thyme popcorn

Like cheese popcorn but hate the powdered stuff? This is a great, classy alternative

Make about 6-8 cups popcorn. While the popcorn is still warm, spray or drizzle with olive or vegetable oil to lightly coat. Finely grate about 1/2 cup Asiago cheese. Add the cheese and about 2-3 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves to the popcorn. Add a pinch of salt. Gently toss and serve.

Brown butter, rosemary and lemon popcorn

I loved the way the butter crackled and bubbled in the pan when I removed it from the heat and tossed in the rosemary. That step made for super-crispy flecks of rosemary. Don't be tempted to add the lemon zest to the butter. It's much more delicate and could burn.

Pop about 6 cups of popcorn. Place 3 tablespoons butter in a small pan and cook over medium heat until it turn light brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the stove and add 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary. Pour the butter over the popcorn. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon lemon zest (from 1 lemon) over top and finish with a few grinds of salt and pepper. Toss to coat and serve.

My favorite kind of toast is crispy, golden-brown Italian bread with a good bit of butter and cinnamon sugar on top. Every bite tastes like the bread is melting in your mouth because the butter-sugar combo is simply magical. This recipe has the same effect.

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

And can you believe I found the popcorn recipe in a church cookbook? Of all things, it was a compilation of parishioners' favorite home recipes. What's the strangest place you've found a favorite recipe?

In a medium pot over medium-high heat, toss the kernels in oil. Cover the pot with a lid. As the kernels begin to pop, gently shake the covered pot to ensure that the popcorn doesn’t burn. Once the kernels stop popping, remove the pot from the stove.

In a small bowl, stir sugar and cinnamon to combine.

Slowly trickle melted butter over the popcorn, stopping frequently to shake the popcorn. Season popcorn to taste with cinnamon-sugar mixture, stopping frequently to shake the popcorn.
