African Ginger Spice Hot Buttered Popcorn Recipe
1/ 2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
1/3 cup clarified butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Ginger Spice Mix
1 tablespoon powdered ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Over medium-high heat, warm a large heavy pot with a lid and add oils. If your oil starts to smoke, it is too hot. Test the heat of the oil by dropping in two kernels. When the kernel pops or spins in the oil, you are ready to add the remaining popcorn. Pour just enough kernels to cover the bottom of the pan. Shake the pan gently to be certain oil coats each kernel. Cover pot, remove from heat when popping slows or stops. Pour popped corn into a large bowl. Season with ginger spice mix to taste.
