This whole grain treat is a no-brainer, quick to make, and inexpensive. Pick up an air popper or use a dry pot on the stove. If you have children, invest in an air popper. From toddlers to teens, they all love it and will come running when they hear it turn on. Over time, your taste buds will adjust and air popped corn dressed lightly will become equally as satisfying as movie theater corn.
By the way, for the sake of your budget, non organic popcorn is not GMO like most corn on the market. For some wonderful reason, they have not made popcorn GMO. Organic of course may have some other benefits, just not that very important one.
This stuff is wonderful!
The times I’ve made air-popped popcorn, I’ve used just put the kernels in a paper bag and then put them in the microwave and listened to when they stopped popping. Would it work if I mixed the apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, and salt in the spray bottle and sprayed it onto the unpopped kernels before putting them into the microwave?
Did you ever try this? Sounds like an interesting idea. I also seek a better way to get it to stick.
My favorite air popped popcorn recipe:
I use a misto sprayer filled with vinegar: http://www.amazon.com/Misto-Brushed-Aluminum-Olive-Sprayer/dp/B00004SPZV/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371521677&sr=8-1&keywords=misto
I spritz vinegar on popcorn heavily (because I like strong flavor)
Then sprinkle on lots of nutritional yeast with something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Libertyware-4-Inch-Stainless-Shaker-Handle/dp/B000WUKSHS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1371521777&sr=8-3&keywords=seasoning+shaker
I usually put the popcorn in a huge bowl but then spritz and sprinkle in small batches as I go so the popcorn doesn’t mush up on me. It’s kinda like a salt and vinegar popcorn with no salt. 🙂
How do you get your salt and nutritional yeast to stick to the popcorn? Mine just ends up at the bottom of the bowl making for very dry, tasteless popcorn.
I make individual bowls, sprinkle it on, and lick my fingers, rub them on the bottom of the bowl and repeat lol! I’ve heard of spraying pop corn with water or braggs, but the pop corn shrinks up and gets soggy. I think the finger licking is the best way. If anyone else knows of a better way please tell us!
