Lemon Butter Popcorn

Hands down it is THE favorite after school snack around here.  Unless you count Dairy Queen just down the street from school but, that would blow my post out of the water so let’s just stick with homemade snacks- k?
They love it because it tastes great and I love it because I know exactly what’s in it.  No hard to pronounce ingredients, no plastic packaging, no mess to clean out of the microwave.

Here’s what you’ll need:
  • popping corn {any kind is fine, but Orville is my tried and true}
  • 1/2 stick of butter {the real thing, no margarine - ew!}
  • juice of 1/2 fresh lemon {squeeze lemon into melted butter}
  • coarse kosher salt {softer and slightly sweeter than table salt}

Oh, I forgot.  One or more helpers {this one will work, don’t you think?}

It really is quite self explanatory.  Pop the corn, add salt and butter to taste, and presto, you have one amazing snack!

Watching the corn pop...here it comes!

How about you?  What is your favorite snack?
Blessings Friends,
