Rosemary Popcorn Snack Recipe

Popcorn is the go-to evening snack in our house. We pop our own kernels with this popcorn maker since microwaved popcorn has a lot of extra chemicals in the “butter” and packaging. This recipe for rosemary infused popcorn makes for a nice change from the ordinary plus the rosemary oil can be saved for a month and used on top of other dishes like pizza.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons Rosemary Infused Oil, recipe follows
  • Salt

Directions:

Stir the popcorn kernels and 1/2 cup of the oil in a heavy large pot. Cover and cook over medium heat until the kernels have popped, shaking the pot halfway through cooking, about 3 minutes. Immediately transfer the popcorn to a large serving bowl. Toss the popcorn with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle with salt, to taste, and serve.

Rosemary Infused Oil:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 5 to 6 fresh rosemary sprigs (each 5 inches long)

Combine the oil and rosemary in a heavy small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. Transfer the sprigs to a 4-ounce bottle or cruet. Add the oil and seal the lid. Refrigerate for up to 1 month.

    Have you tried putting this maker in the middle of a sheet on the ground, taking off the lid, and having a fun popcorn party with A? This is the kind that works really well!
