Posh microwave popcorn!

With the exception of the film, popcorn is probably my favourite part of going to the movies. Actually come to think of it there's probably a few films that I would have walked out of if I hadn't had a popcorn tub the size of my mop bucket to chomp through! I've tried to make popcorn at home but it's never been great. Microwave popcorn tastes a bit plastic & the time I tried to pop my own, I ended up having to send a pan to kitchen heaven with a irreversibly scorched bottom! So when I was mooching around Great Portland Street killing time before a meeting I was excited to find ZaraMamaS Gourmet Popping Corn. It's a completely natural dried corn on the cob that comes with a bag so you can pop it in the microwave.

Put the cob into the bag & tie up the top

Pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes until the popping stops...

...you get a lovely fresh bag of popcorn

The kernels just pop themselves off the cob!

It's really tasty & I like the fact you can season it yourself. I split my batch in two & seasoned half with salt & pepper, the other half I drizzled (ok maybe more than drizzled!) with maple syrup which was absolutely delicious! ZaraMamaS products are available from deli's & farm shops across the country, have a look at their website for more tasty treats. I'm off to pick a movie to watch with my popcorn, Rebecca x

  1. Gosh, I've never seen these before! It looks and sounds so weird, yet strangely compelling. It's got to be more fun than the usual boring microwave bags.
