I've been dying to try this. A little while ago I made homemade popcorn and wondered how I could change up the traditional taste of plain old butter and salt. I think I found it.
This is awesome and a healthy alternative to salt and vinegar chips--one of my favorite snacks.
To do this:
- Pop your popcorn.
- Melt butter over medium heat. Let it brown.
- Add about 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar.
- Let it reduce slightly.
- When the popcorn is still hot, mix your balsamic brown butter mixture into the popcorn.
- Add a little salt... and pepper to taste. Kind of strange to add pepper to popcorn, but it actually makes the vinegar pop.
