Does anything inspire more awe than the humble little corn kernel that pops into a delicious snack with the help of heat? I just think it’s one of earth’s greatest (and tastiest) snacks (it isn’t half bad for your health either)!
Let’s be honest, though–what makes popcorn really delicious is the salt. But don’t even think about grabbing a salt shaker of commercial-grade table salt to use on these precious little gifts of yummy flavor. A snack like popcorn deserves better than that!
Try one of Beyond the Shaker’s premium gourmet salts on your next batch of popcorn with a bit of melted butter to help it stick. I promise you will not be disappointed. Here are some of my favorites for popcorn:
- Citrus Basil. It’s pretty much perfect in every way as the deep tones of citrus combine with unrefined sea salt and a touch of basil, for a light, crisp flavor.
- Windy City Celery. Organic mustard seed, jalapeno, and natural sea salt really bring the best out of popcorn. Delicious!
- Chef’s Blend. A little unrefined salt, a little gourmet pepper, a lot of taste.
- Garlic Shallot. Ah, YUM! Beautiful tangy earth tones practically leap into your mouth as the zip of organic garlic and shallot mix with gorgeous salinity. Need I say more?
So grab your kernels, a little oil, a pot and pop away. Marvel at the wonder of popcorn, and sprinkle on some Beyond the Shaker salts. Enjoy!
