On the heels of jazzy jambalya and bluesy blueberries, Travis helped make one final musical recipe today from Raddish Kids. With a rainstorm outside, it was the perfect time for an indoor party of Pop music and and popcorn!
To start, heat 2 tablespoon canola oil in a large heavy pot. Add just 1 corn kernel and wait until it pops. To pass the time, we queued up Pop music on Spotify.
As soon as that one kernel pops, your oil is hot enough. We added 1/2 cup additional kernels to the pot. Hold onto the pot with potholders and shake while the kernels are popping. I had to do this step since our pot was heavy, but Travis loved watching… And listening! Pop pop pop.
Wait until you only hear 1 pop per second, then remove from heat. We got surprised by a few final kernels popping up at us, which Travis loved!
Transfer the popcron to a large bowl. Melt 2 tablespoons Earth Balance butter in the microwave and drizzle over the popcorn. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Now you’re ready for a movie and popcorn afternoon!
