Popcorn - Mumof2.com


There’s something about the smell of popcorn that helps to brighten any day. I am a chocolate girl through and through. But when the boys are a bit hungry and late lunch is cooking (today it’s Spaghetti Bolog_use anything up in the veggie tray_naise) then munching on some popcorn helps to keep the hungry moodyness at bay (and lessens the fighting as a result).

I have gone the route of olive oil but the boys said it had a ‘weird’ taste so have gone back to good ol sunflower oil. Strangely enough, I tried making ‘Caramel popcorn’ by adding the sugar to the raw kernals prior to popping. Whilst they had a sweet caramelly flavour – the boys didn’t like this either. Good old fashioned salt at the end seems to win hands down. And the dogs seem to like it too! I have no idea if it is healthy for them but I have to watch when it pops out onto the kitchen floor that they have given it time to cool before they munch on it.

I know this is not a recipe but it counts as a quick snack, that is sort of healthy depending on what you put on it and how much oil you use.

  1. Hi Kelly! So how much oil do you use?! We then to buy the ready made packs! Great to see you blogging! Such sage advice told through humour! More recipes please! 😉 Xx

  2. Hi Liz!

    I lightly cover the bottom of the pot as it is mainly to ensure the unpopped kernels don’t stick and heat the oil prior to adding the popcorn. Gve it a little shake to coat the kernels and make sure you pop a lid on and hold it down. Once the popping starts you never know where things will go! I still battle with the less is more approach and end up with waaaay more popcorn than planned.

    I by mistake made a lovely chocolately dessert the other evening to use up some cream and pecan nuts so will be sure to post it soon. I am glad you are enjoying mumof2.com
