Spicy Super Pop Treat
Comment on this recipe
Tastes similar to kettle corn bought at outdoor vendors booths but not nearly as salty or sugary. Spice can be adjusted to taste.
This mixture of spices and sugar can be tossed over air-popped popcorn as well.
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup popcorn kernels (before popping)
1 tablespoon almond, walnut or olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, ginger, cayenne and salt.
In a large pot with a lid, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in the spice mixture and the popcorn kernels, mix well. Sprinkle the sugar on top, but don't stir.
Reduce the heat to medium, cover the pot and cook, shaking the pot often, until the popping sound ends.
Transfer to a large bowl and serve hot.
