Honey & Lemon Popcorn

Honey & Lemon Popcorn
Makes 8 cups

Call this New York Kettle Corn. Salty, sweet, zesty… I dare you to take only one bite. Every adult will feel like a kid again with this popcorn that triples as an easy pantry driven snack, appetizer or sweet finish to a meal. Make it easier: purchase (and microwave) plain popcorn and toss with honey butter dressing. Or, go crazy and use orange or lime zest – I dare you.

½ cup popcorn kernels
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons honey
Zest 1 lemon

If popping your own kernels, preheat oil in a large skillet or pot (with a lid) over medium high heat. When the pan is warm, add kernels. Continue to cook until all popped. Remove from heat.

In a small microwave safe bowl combine butter and honey, heat until melted and stir to combine. Toss honey butter dressing with popcorn, adding lemon zest, salt and pepper until desired taste is reached. Mix well to evenly distribute butter and enjoy.
