A delicious, zingy popcorn seasoned with sumac spice.
- 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
- ½ cup popcorn kernels, divided
- Salt, to taste
- Sumac spice – 1/2 – 1 teaspoon, to taste
- In a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, combine the oil and 1-2 popcorn kernels. Cover the pot and wait for the kernels to pop.
- Once those kernels pop, remove pot from the burner and quickly add in the remaining kernels. Cover the pot with lid and give it a little shake to distribute the kernels evenly.
- Place covered pot on medium heat and allow the kernels to begin popping – every few minutes give the pot a little shimmy to move the kernels around.
- Continue cooking until you hear the popping begin to slow down, give the pot a quick shimmy and remove from heat.
- Remove lid and season directly in your pot. Adding salt to taste and a 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of sumac spice to taste. Shake popcorn until fully coated and then pour into serving bowls to enjoy!
- Use a good, heavy-bottomed pot. A heavy bottom pot is important – it is best at distributing heat to cook evenly.
- Don’t turn the heat up too high. Popcorn can burn very easily, so keep the temperature at medium and be sure to check for any burning smell.
- Season slowly. Start with less and you can always add more!
