This summer, whether you are enjoying the easing of restrictions, holidaying and visiting friends and family, or relishing the peace of a staycation, one thing is a given: most of us have a little extra downtime. Sydney summers mean long (so very long) school holidays and stifling weather that makes it hard to think about turning the oven on to prepare hot food & complicated meals. And if you're like me, you're also looking to tighten your financial belt after the silly season blowout.
Enter homemade popcorn. Delicious, nutritious (hello, high fibre wholegrain!) and cheap. It's the perfect companion to an evening watching a movie, a rainy afternoon playing board games, a quick and impromptu snack when guests - or late night hunger - descend without warning.
This week we've been busy in the Village test kitchen coming up with some scrumptious popcorn flavourings. We worked tirelessly, testing batch after batch of hot, buttery popcorn gussied up with a variety of spices and flavours. Here are our finalists. You're welcome.
