Honey Buttered Popcorn
originally a pioneer woman recipe
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup white popcorn kernels (uncooked)
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. fleur de sel salt (you can certainly substitute regular salt)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a small sauce pan place honey, vanilla, and butter together on low heat. Leave on low and allow to melt together.
In a large pot place the 2 tablespoons of oil. Place two kernels of popcorn in the pan with the oil and place on medium heat with the lid on.
Allow to heat until you hear the kernels pop open - that's how you know the oil is hot enough to place in the rest of the popcorn. Once open, pour in the kernels.
Place the lid on and shake frequently. Isn't my hubby a nice helper! :)
Remove lid when popping has stopped to 1-2 seconds between pops - otherwise it WILL burn! You should have glorious looking popcorn that looks like this!
Go ahead and give a good sprinkle of fleur de sel, and then drizzle with the honey butter mixture. Mix it all up, and enjoy your yummy creation! SO much better than movie theatre popcorn!
