Ingredients
  • 375 ml Popcorn (we pop ours in an air popper)
  • Melted Butter (about 2 -3 tbsp)
  • Truffle Oil (start with a little and taste regularily until you get the right amount. It can be very strong so a little goes a long way
  • Salt (we use sea salt infused with fresh thyme)
  • Fresh cracked Pepper
Directions

Pop your popcorn in an air popper into a large vessel. We use a large pail so we can distribute the butter, truffle oil, salt and pepper evenly.

Drizzle with ⅓  of the melted butter. Shake or toss. Repeat a couple more times.

Drizzle with a small amount of truffle oil. Shake or toss. Taste and repeat if necessary.

Grind salt in a spice grinder with fresh thyme infusing the salt with the thyme flavour.  It will look bright green to begin with but as it drys out will take on a dried green colour. You can make a fair amount of this and store it in an airtight container for future use.

Sprinkle with thyme infused salt. Shake or toss.

Sprinkle with fresh cracked black pepper. Shake or toss.

Enjoy!  Particularly with Sparkling wine or a buttery Chardonnay.

Why do these two very different items go so well together?  The yeastiness of the Sparkling and the earthiness of the truffle oil marry well, as well as the saltiness of the popcorn and the refreshing effervescence of the sparkling.  Try it ...we think you’ll like it....alot!

For a sampling of Truffle Popcorn visit us on Friday afternoons and taste it with our Blue Mountain NV Brut Sparkling.
