Browned Butter and Lemon Popcorn
The best part of it is the butter though.
I really can't ask for more.
Well, I could asked for browned butter, but that seems a little demanding on my part.
When I'm at home, I'll keep browning my butter and topping with fresh lemon zest, but when I go to the theater, I'm just going to be overjoyed with real butter made from real cream which came from real cows!
BROWNED BUTTER & LEMON POPCORN
6 c. popped popcorn
1/2 c. butter
zest of 1/2 lemon
1. In a small saucepan, cook butter until it turns brown and there are small, brown flecks on the bottom of the pan. (Watch carefully because it will burn.)
2. Pour browned butter over prepared popcorn. Sprinkle with lemon zest and salt to taste and toss to evenly distribute.
