Happy National Popcorn day!

Yummy!

 

 

 

 

 

Archaeologists discovered that people have known about popcorn for thousands of years. In Mexico, for example, remnants of popcorn have been found that date to around 3600 BC!

Here are two recipes for popcorn tonight!

One savory and spicy and one sweet and decadent. Enjoy!

Coconut Curry Popcorn

Popcorn

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels

Toppings

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons ginger powder

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat coconut oil over medium heat in a large stock pot with a lid. Add kernels, cover with a lid, and cook, shaking the pot occasionally to prevent burning. Continue to cook until popping slows.
  2. Remove from heat and add the coconut flakes, coconut oil, curry powder, and ginger powder. Put the lid back on and shake vigorously until popcorn is well coated.
  3. Cover with lid and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds. Serve immediately.
