After stocking up on some Teapigs Winter Spiced Red Tea yesterday on offer in Tesco, I nearly bought some of their popcorn tea also in the same section. When I got to the till, a pack of their 15 teabags cost £4.13 so realised it had put been put there in error and just bought the Christmasy £1 bags.
I know some have seen my instagram tea picture yesterday – I drank 4 teapig cups and loved reminiscing about Christmas cakes and warm cosy times while it still quite chilly in March. So today after going to a one off hospital appointment, when I got home, and craved a treat while binge watching repeats of That 70s Show on Netflix. As it has been quite out of the ordinary today as opposed to a regular Sunday, I didn’t deny myself of it – despite not long ago, I ate a late lunch.
So I did some popcorn cooking research. I’ve made many types – there are so many unique and delicious types on the internet. I got a feel of other people’s recipes but my craving took control and experimented. I’m glad it did!
I tried one combination first – attempting a more infused style with dried spices but failed while using frylight.
Here is my delicious end result:
100g dried popcorn
Sprinkle of ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp granulated sweetener
A pinch of salt
1 tsp peanut hottie
1 tbsp nutella (optional)
– Spray your lidded pan with a lot of Frylight
-Put in the popcorn and cook on medium/high heat with the lid on
-Shake the pan every 20 seconds.
-As the popcorn pops, shake the pan more frequent as the popping gets more frequent.
-Once the popping slows, keep shaking vigorously until they are few and far between and stop when there is no popping for 10 seconds – you don’t want them to burn.
Now add all of the spices and mix. Mix the nutella really well to avoid clumps.
I am sorry I do not know the syns but today I am not counting as I have been so good this week.
I hope you enjoy!
