Popcorn is a fast and satisfying treat that is great to serve at parties or during a movie. The paprika adds a great zing and the savory popcorn is a nice change from the sugar laden caramel popcorn or butter drenched popcorn sold as the theater.

Preparation Time: 3 minutes
Cooking Time:4 minutes
Makes: 12 cups of popcorn

2 tablespoons oil
1 cup popcorn kernel
1/3 stick butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
3 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar

Heat oil in a large pot with a lid over a high heat, add the popcorn and quickly put on the lid.

Let the popcorn pop, shaking the pot every now and again to stop the kernels burning. Once the popping has slowed down remove from the heat.

Melt the butter and spices in another pot and then pour over the popped popcorn. Clamp the lid back on and give it a good shake until the popcorn is coated. Taste and add more salt or sugar if needed.

Arrange in bowls and enjoy at parties or as a snack during a movie!

Eat the day you make.
