Honey, Lavender & Orange Stovetop Popcorn
Recipe featured in the Intuitive Cooking and Eating Summit
½ cup non-GMO popping corn kernels
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt, or to taste
Zest from 2 large oranges
4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons ground dried food-grade lavender, or to taste
1. Heat oil and corn kernels together in a large covered pot over medium-high heat. Once the popping begins, give the pot an occasional shake to loosen the kernels and to distribute the heat amongst them.
2. While popcorn is popping, crush and grind lavender seeds in mortor & pestle as finely as possible.
3. Once all kernels have popped, remove from heat and uncover. Add the salt, pepper, lavender, and zest to the popcorn and stir to evenly distribute. Add the honey (pouring all over popcorn, not just in one spot) and stir until evenly incorporated.
4. Serve and enjoy!
