Googie’s Kitchen presents Sweet and Salty popcorn

Gifts from Grandpa is my NEW recipe book – out NOW and available to buy on Amazon for only £19.99. Plus £1 from the sale of each book will go to Crisis the homeless charity.

Saturday night is movie night in our house! On a Saturday my husband Howard and I allow our son Ted to stay up a little bit later to watch a film of his choice. I was until recently making popcorn for this event. Then we started buying it from the supermarket and I stopped cooking the popcorn. I don’t know why or how this happened but I decided to revive our Saturday night treat. Below the picture is the video link and blog on how to make this yummy popcorn.

Sweet and Salty Popcorn

Sweet and Salty popcorn is such a quick and simple recipe. It’s a great snack, it’s fantastic as part of a lunchbox and it also makes a good after dinner treat too. Plus, if you’re like me and trying to stop those processed foods going into your families bodies, then this is a good alternative. Popcorn is lightweight and easy to carry around. So next time you go to the cinema why not take this instead of eating the popcorn in the cinema. However you decide to eat this popcorn, as always, enjoy.

Does anyone buy popcorn from the cinema? It’s such a cheap product to make and yet I still see people buying it? Do you think you would ever take your own homemade popcorn? Let me know in the comments below.
