  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add 3 popcorn kernels to the oil and cover saucepan with a lid. Once the 3 kernels have popped, the oil is ready. Add the remaining popcorn, cover saucepan, and cook popcorn, shaking saucepan constantly, until you no longer hear popping. Remove saucepan from heat.

  • Transfer popcorn to a large heat-proof bowl and let sit for 2 minutes to ensure better coverage by the butter.

  • Pour half of the butter mixture in a second large bowl and swirl it around the bottom and sides; add popcorn and mix with a big spoon. Transfer the popcorn back in the first large bowl; stir again. Pour remaining half butter mixture into the second bowl and swirl around again; add the popcorn in and mix again.

3.30.18 The lemony flavor of the sumac does come through and it partners well with the chili powder. This was pretty good I just don t know that I liked it well enough to make again. Read More

Good recipe but one that made me realize I am not a fan of sumac. No fault of the recipe but just a personal preference. If you love sumac and popcorn too then you really should give this one a try! Read More
