Popcorn Butter

July 6th, 2010

On a Southwest flight, sitting in my cozy middle seat with my seat belt fastened and electronic devices turned off and stowed away, waiting for the plane to take off, I flipped through the complimentary issue of Spirit Magazine. While it was not quite the same as 36 channels of free Direct TV, my flip through was enjoyable and I came across a recipe that I had to have Popcorn Butter.

So, I after some consideration (since A. it kinda feels like stealing, B. it’s hard to be discrete when you’re sharing an armrest with a stranger, and C. even if you’re the first one to read it, once it touches the inside of that seat-back pocket, it’s absolutely covered in germs), I grabbed the upper corner of the page, quickly ripped it out of the magazine and took it with me as a souvenir.

I have yet to try it, but how could it be anything short of absolutely amazing?! Popcorn + Butter together like PB + J.

Put 2 1/2 cups of popped popcorn in a food processor and grind until popcorn is the texture of coarse sand. Put 1/2 pound of softened unsalted butter in bowl of a stand mixer and blend with paddle attachment until it’s smooth and fluffy. Add ground popcorn and 1 1/2 teaspoons honey to butter. Mix well. Salt to taste. Makes one cup.

Tocca Candles

The Tiare flower is as beautiful a symbol of the island of Tahiti as its native people. Its pure essence combined with the sweetness of coconut pays homage to the sensual tranquility of this most alluring of islands.
