In this category you will find recipes for flavoured popcorn, most of them spicy popcorn recipes. They almost all use the basic plain popcorn recipe as a base. If you have trouble sourcing popping corn, try your local health-food store. Our local Waitrose stocks popping corn in various sized packets.
When popping corn, heat the oil to almost smoking, throw in just a few kernels of popping corn, replace the lid and wait for them to pop. Once they have, your oil is at temperature and ready to go - add the rest of the kernels.
If your flavour-source is dry, eg; the likes of: ginger powder, salt, sugar etc, then you can just shake them over the popped corn and serve immediately. If your flavour-source is moist, eg; the likes of: soy sauce, vinegar, fruit juice etc, then you will need to roast the popcorn in a low oven (150° C - 300° F - gas 2) for about 10 minutes so it can dry out and crisp up again. Otherwise you'll just have soggy mush.
Quite a useful source for popcorn recipes [here].
