a traveling Wife: Garlic and Herb Popcorn

Garlic and Herb Popcorn

This Garlic and Herb Popcorn is sure to be the cure for any popcorn craving you are having. It is buttery and spiced to perfection. 

I am actually eating some of the remaining S'mores Popcorn while I am typing this post. Surprisingly, it took me a few tries to perfect that recipe so I have some snacking to do. On the other hand, it only took me one try to make a perfect batch of today's Garlic and Herb Popcorn for the fourth day of the Five Days of Popcorn series.

I have always been a lover of all things garlic. I like it roasted and smeared on crusty bread, I like it raw in meals like spaghetti aglio, and I like it sauteed in with onions as the base of a recipe. It's just delicious.

This Garlic and Herb Popcorn recipe was inspired by a garlic butter I make to place on top of delicious medium rare steaks. After the steaks have been seared, cooked, and allowed to rest, you just place a nice helping of garlic butter to melt on top. It's amazing!

The garlic butter is made up of butter, minced garlic, salt, and Herbes de Provence. Herbes de Provence is one of my favorite cooking spices. It contains herbes such as rosemary, fennel, thyme, basil, tarragon, dill weed, lavendar, oregano, and marjoram. Talk about an fantastic list of ingredients.

Now that we understand the basis of this popcorn, let's make some!
