I recently wandered into the Spice and Tea Exchange, and got lost in all the enticing jars. I felt like I was in an old time apothecary shop.
While there are endless combinations of spice blends, I was quite intrigued about making my own mixes. Particularly as seasonings for popcorn. There was a beer powder – beer and cheddar popcorn, anyone? For my first concoction, I went with more mainstream flavors. I especially liked that the cheese powders didn’t contain extra sodium, giving me more control over the saltiness.
- Mix cheese powders, salt, pepper, and garlic powder together in a small bowl. Pop the popcorn kernels using desired method. Place hot popcorn in a large bowl. Sprinkle with half the seasoning mixture, and toss. Sprinkle the remaining seasoning mixture on the popcorn and toss again.
