Pop it like it’s hot!
Designer popcorn is all the rage at the moment and it’s really easy and fun to make your own. The combination of maple syrup and dulse in this recipe gets the balance between sweet and salty just right, so there shouldn’t be any fights about which kind to go for!
30g unsalted butter
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
150g popcorn kernels
3 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp dulse flakes
Put a large heavy-based saucepan on a medium to hot heat. Add the oil and 20g of the butter and melt.
Add the popcorn kernels and move them around in the butter and oil until evenly covered.
Put a lid on and leave for a few minutes until you hear the first pop. Shake the pan around on the hob so that the corn moves – this way all the kernels will heat up and pop.
Make sure you keep the lid firmly on. If it smells as if the corn might be burning, take it off the heat and wait until the popping stops, then mix around with a wooden spoon to free up any pieces stuck on the bottom.
When all of the corn has popped (this should take about five minutes) remove from the heat.
Heat up the remaining butter and the maple syrup in a small pan. When the butter has melted, remove from the heat and pour over the corn.
Scatter the dulse over the popcorn and mix around with a metal spoon. Put any leftover popcorn into a sealed tub for later (unlikely, we know…).
