5 Delicious Popcorn Recipes for your Netflix Marathon

With the memories of Summer fading, the nights getting shorter and the weather getting cooler; we head indoors.

What better way to spend cooler nights than watching Netflix – and what makes this even more enjoyable? Popcorn.

Salted Popcorn – Base recipe

  • – 1/4 cup oil
  • – 2/3 cup popcorn kernels

Make approx 20 cups popcorn

Add the oil and 3 kernels to a large pot with a glass lid. When the kernels have popped the pot’s temperature is up to heat. Add the rest of the kernels and take the pot off the heat. Wait 30 seconds. Put the pot back on the heat and shake occassionally until popping slows. After 2 mins take the lid off to let out any steam and keep the popcorn crisp. Sprinkle with salt and toss to coat.

Cheat: Use a popcorn maker. Simply add kernels to the popcorn maker and let it pop – it’s super quick and easy. Plus there’s no need to use butter or oil at all if you wanted a healthier alternative.
