Ever wondered how to pop popcorn? A little while ago I had a sudden craving for popcorn, not microwave popcorn, but REAL popcorn. So I went out and bought myself some popcorn kernels and started popping! I really had fun popping and creating all kinds of flavoured popcorn. I decided I had to add the old fashioned way of popping corn to my list of basic recipes. Just because it’s fun and because it’s a nice snack that can be healthy if you don’t add too much unhealthy stuff to it!

There’s a lot you can do with popcorn, make it sweet with sugar or savory with salt or add some cheese to the mix.

Now you know how to pop popcorn, why not add some flavor to them and try a cinnamon and sugar version or give your popcorn a pumpkin spice (or speculaas) flavor?
