on sage popcorn...

Did you ever want to put a different spin on your movie/party popcorn? Well, I'm here to save the day. Go ahead and add some sage next time you pop some popcorn :) It will be a hit. First you need about one cup of fresh sage. Place the sage onto a plate and make sure that they are spread evenly. 
Microwaving the sage is my favorite part. That gentle aroma that it lets off when heated is heavenly. I can't even explain the scent. It's almost sweet. Once it's done in the microwave it should be nice and crispy. 
You can make your popcorn next. I recommend popping kernels on the stovetop instead of using bagged popcorn. This way the flavor of the sage won't be masked by all the butter. If you do use kernels just heat up about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large pot. Put a couple kernels in the pot and cover. Once they pop the oil should be ready to dump 1/2 cup of kernels. Let them pop for about 10 minutes. Shake pot back and forth while covered. 
Once you have your popcorn transfer to a bowl, drizzle with olive oil. Lastly take  the sage and crumble over the top. Toss to coat and add some salt to taste. 
There you have it. Sage popcorn :) Perfect for a Holiday party! Enjoy.
