You Will Never Make Microwave Popcorn Again!!!!

One of my best “blogging” friends Jessica writes The Entertaining House.  If you don’t follow her blog, you definitely should.  It is amazing and she writes beautifully.  I had been following her for years and we eventually met up and I am so lucky that our friendship blossomed.  Jessica is so talented.  Which brings me today’s post. She posts the most amazing recipes.  However, I have a soft spot for her  truffled popcorn.  I make it all the time.

Olive oil
White Truffle Oil
Popcorn kernels
Sea Salt
A large pot with lid

Fully coat the bottom of your pot with a combination of the olive and truffle oils (roughly 3-4 tbs)
Add a very generous amount of salt to the bottom of the pan (the popcorn will absorb some but much will also stick to the pan)
Turn the heat on to high
Add enough kernels to fully cover the olive oil
Listen,  as the kernels begin to pop
Turn the heat down slightly and gently shake the pot
Listen carefully and when the popcorn slows and nearly stops popping remove the pot from the burner. WARNING: The bottom will be very hot so place on a hot plate or on another burner.
Remove the lid and carefully drizzle more Truffle Oil over the popcorn.
Add more sea salt and some pepper to taste
If its not devoured right away it tastes as good the next day!

I am sooo proud of our sponsor, Stile Fashion and Home in Armonk for wining the Best of Westchester award for best GIFTS!!!  I have been shopping at Stile for clothes, and accessories and home decor items for a while now and I am so glad that they were recognized for the second time by Best of Westchester.  Here is what they had to say:

Inside, you’ll find eye candy in the form of trendy bags and jewelry, luxurious candles, and of-the-moment clothing. The store’s owner, Julie Root, will take extra care in helping you find the flawless gift, and you’ll probably go home with something for yourself, as well. – Westchester Magazine.
