Servings: 4 people
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 100 g popcorn kernels
- 75 g unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoons bacon salt
Drizzle the olive oil into a large pan with a lid. Turn the heat on and to test when your popcorn is ready just pour in 3 of the popcorn kernels. Place the lid on and leave for the corn to pop, it will take a minute or so to get going.
As soon as the 3 kernels have popped then you know it’s the right temperature. Pour in the rest of the popcorn, place the lid on and wait until all the popcorn has popped, shaking the pan every now and then to prevent any burning.
Meanwhile melt the butter in a small saucepan with the maple syrup and bacon salt over a medium heat. After the butter has melted it will start sizzling, leave it to sizzle and crackle and so it begins to turn brown. Once the sizzling has stopped and the butter is a nice nutty brown then remove from the heat.
By this time the popcorn should also have stopped popping. As soon as the corn can go 3 seconds without popping then remove from the heat immediately so it doesn’t burn and pour into a bowl.
Pour the maple and bacon salt butter over the popcorn and stir well so it’s coated thoroughly.
