Truffle Popcorn from Blather staff chef - Jean Denham
Here's a fun and delicious popcorn to be enjoyed at parties or curled up with a favorite book. If you can't find truffle oil or salt at your specialty stores, they can be purchased on the internet.
1/2 cup popcorn
Vegetable oil to coat the popcorn lightly
1 1/2 T. truffle oil
Truffle infused salt to taste
1/2 T lemon zest, optional
In a small plastic bag, pour in popcorn and vegtable oil. Work bag with hands to completely coat the kernels. Pop corn in a heated large, heavy pot with lid. Immediately add truffle oil, truffle salt and lemon zest. Toss popcorn to mix well and serve!
Jean's tip: Truffle popcorn is wonderful with a glass of Barbaresco, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or, of course, brut champagne.
