Organic Popcorn With a Gourmet Popcorn Taste

"The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves." - W.C. Fields

You gotta hand it to those lazy people to come up with a new gourmet popcorn recipe no one would have thought of... While it wouldn't have occurred to me to put popcorn in pancakes until I read that quote by W.C. Fields we did enjoy a nice batch of organic popcorn last night with a movie.

I stopped at Coborn's grocery for the first time the other day and found their natural and organic foods section - and just had to try the Natural Flavor organic popcorn made by Full Circle. I also had to keep true to my usual kitchen creativeness and spruce up the batch for a little impromptu gourmet popcorn a-la hot organic butter and a homemade secret garlic herb seasoning mix (just toss your favorite herbs, some garlic granules, and sea salt in a grinder and dash away - ok the secret is out).

Full Circle Organic Popcorn Natural Flavor It was the yummiest batch of popcorn I have had in awhile and my secret seasoning mix can't take all the credit because the Full Circle organic popcorn was light, fluffy and dangerously delicious all on its own.

Full Circle makes four types of organic microwave popcorn including Organic Light Butter Microwave Popcorn, Organic No Salt/No Butter Microwave Popcorn, Organic Butter Microwave Popcorn and Organic Natural Flavor Microwave Popcorn. I'm sure the other flavors are scrumptious as well - I guess I'll just have to try them - I know it will be a huge sacrifice but what is a natural health blogger to do?

"Full Circle Microwave Popcorn is produced with only certified USDA organic ingredients by certified organic growers and processors. It is produced on land farmed without the use of chemicals, synthetic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers using sustainable farming methods."

  1. Challenge yourself to even better popcorn: Get yourself some regular popcorn & a pot with a tight-fitting lid. Put your pot on the stove, turn it on about medium high, & let the pot get good and heated up. Put in a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil & let those heat up. You’ll know when it’s ready when a few kernels of popcorn thrown in the pot pop right away. Now, cover the bottom of the pot with popcorn & put the lid on. Occasionally give the pot a shake without taking off the lid. When the popping slows way down, turn the stove off. Wait a minute or two, take the lid off. Add melted butter & whatever seasoning makes you happy (we use salt & garlic pepper). YUM!!

  2. Yah I love garlic pepper on popcorn too. 🙂 Homemade popcorn is certainly better than microwave since those dastardly microwaves aren’t too good for you, but treating yourself to the convenience of some organic microwave popcorn is second best to popping your own.

  3. Garlic pepper is just about our favorite seasoning, period. Happy popcorn, happy steak, happy eggs–it’s a great place to start seasoning. And, yes, my toddler & my preschooler eat it right up.

  4. Yes, but does Full Circle use microwave bags that are lined with plastics?

    • I don’t recall, I don’t think so but it has been awhile since I’ve used it. We’ve been doing a lot of popcorn the old fashioned way – popping the kernels in a pot on the stove. 🙂 We just got some heirloom popcorn to try that sounds delicious!
