Signiture Herbed Popcorn recipe by The Fooding Co.

In an effort to establish some signature party elements it's good to have some sort of go to dish or offering for your guests. In launching The Fooding Co. We decided we wanted to do something everyone would remember and be able to take with them at the end of the night. I thought developing a signature popcorn would be the perfect way to accomplish this. I was right, it was a huge hit. People went crazy for our herbed popcorn. 

Here's the low down...

Organic yellow kernel popcorn
canola + extra virgin olive oil 
herb de provence - rough grind the herbs or buy a pre made blend
  • 3 Tablespoons dried thyme
  • 3 Tablespoons dried savory
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
*If popping from scratch:
{ Per  cup of un-popped kernels use 2 tbs of oil (1tsp canola + 1tsp of olive oil) Heat oil in a large pot. Drop in one kernel to test the oil, If the oil starts to fry the kernel (little bubbles begin to form around it) drop in all of the remaining kernels and place the lid on the pot. Once the popcorn starts popping lower the heat slightly and shake the pot for a few seconds. Continue until you hear the popping begin to slow down, then turn the heat off. To finish the popcorn add a pinch of salt and herb blend and toss the popcorn for even distribution.
*If using pre popped corn: In a small pot bring 1/2 cup of olive oil to “boil” As soon as you see a tiny bubble or heat a snap turn the heat off and drop in 1 tsp of salt and 2 tbs of herb blend. Let the flavor of the herbs infuse in the oil for a few minutes before drizzling on the popcorn (use a small amount first and then add more if needed) – then toss everything together.

  1. I love just about any type of popcorn, but this one takes the cake! What a great idea of passing it out to guests. I'm going to give the recipe a try this weekend. Thanks for sharing!
