Add Some Extra Pep to Your Popcorn

Occasionally in my office, a buzz starts to go from desk to desk because a certain someone in our department has decided to give us a little extra surprise - some to die for rosemary popcorn. This stuff is ridiculously addictive and such a phenomenol pick-me-up when the going gets tough on a Wednesday afternoon.

The best part is that as long as you make sure to have some fresh rosemary in the house (or are savvy enough to have your very own rosemary plant) this is so super simple to throw together - a great for guests at a party or just for you to devour yourself!

Rosemary Popcorn
Freshly popped plain popcorn
A few sprigs of rosemary, finely chopped
1-2 T of unsalted butter
2-3 T of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt to Taste

Pop your popcorn as you normally would, either in a popcorn maker or a plain bag of microwave popcorn. I use a West Bend "Stir Crazy" popcorn maker.
In a microwave safe container, combine the unsalted butter, extra virgin olive oil and chopped rosemary. Microwave until butter is melted. During this time, it will allow the rosemary flavor to infuse. Give the mixture a good stir and pour over popcorn, stirring with a big wooden spoon as you good.
Sprinkle with sea salt (or regular table salt), to taste.
Note: You may want to adjust the quantities based on the amount of popcorn you make. This recipe is based on approximately 2/3 C unpopped kernels.

Now, the only question is, what move are you going to watch while eating your gourmet popcorn?!
