Early this year, I got Curtis Stone’s new cook book – Relax cooking with Curtis Stone. Flipping through pages of beautiful food, it would be great to have a personal chef at home!!
But since I don’t, let’s try this Home-made popcorn, it caught my eyes because I always happen to burn the microwave one… and being able to make popcorn at home is just cool and chefy like, and definitely crowd pleaser!... Read more.
Heat up 2 tbsp of peanut oil in a deep pot, drop in 1 corn kernel in the hot oil, if it floats to the surface, then the oil is hot enough.
Place 1/2 cup of corn kernels in the hot oil, lid on, give it a squirrel to make sure every kernel is evenly coated with oil. After about 2-3 minutes you’ll hear the popping sound.
Constantly shake the pot while it’s popping. Keep it on low heat until there are no popping sound left, turn off the heat and place popped corns in a large bowl, add sugar and salt to season.
(Remember to season while popcorns are still hot)
Then it’s all ready to serve!!! Place in a pretty bowl and eat up!!
At Step 3, you can personalize your own flavour, Curtis Stone made caramel popcorn in the book! sounds very nice, but I’m lazy and as the corn kernels pops, the whole room smells so yummy, I just want to dig in the pop corn mountain! And plus my oil already has a peanut taste!!
Salt brings out the flavour to another level, but your won’t taste it!!
