There is not much I love as much as popcorn. The Spectrum’s popcorn ranks highly – real, melted delicious butter on hot fresh popcorn. The more butter, the better! I’ve been straying a bit from my usual popcorn regime lately, and the results have been fabulous.
My typical popcorn order is either olive oil and kosher salt (and maybe parmesan) or butter and salt. Walnut oil has become a new favorite – it gives a subtle but surprisingly rich buttery flavor in each kernel. This picture is of popcorn popped in walnut oil, with a bit of melted butter (look, it’s hard to do less than 2 T of butter for popcorn. I’m kind of addicted) and gobs of paprika. It’s stain-yer-fingers good and the paprika just makes everything taste even more buttery. Yum!
My least favorite popcorn topping of all time has to be Old Bay. That is just WRONG. But then again Old Bay is also my least favorite flavoring. Pleh. What’s your favorite? Or most hated?
