Hurried, distracted.
Tripped & slipped up, snap, crackle, pop …
Ouch!! My aching back …

Heat a deep, heavy pan, preferably cast-iron, over medium-high heat. Add enough toasted sesame oil to generously cover the bottom. When the oil is really hot add enough popcorn to cover the entire surface. Stir a few a times, then cover the pot leaving the lid slightly ajar to give the steam an escape route.
When the popping is starting to slow down, reduce the heat a little. Carefully shake the pan a few times but be sure to hold on to the lid! Once all the kernels have popped, remove the lid and sprinkle a little salt over the top. Pour the popcorn into a bowl and sprinkle a little more salt on top. Enjoy!

I like to use a homemade lemon salt on my popcorn. Other favorite toppings include Shichimi Togarashi, Za’atar, Nutrional yeast, and occasionally a little melted butter or parmesan.

P.S. This poem was inspired by a recent tweaked back during my garden-clean-up marathon. 🙂

  1. When I read “snap crackle pop” I wasn’t expecting to read about bones. 🙂 Hope your back is feeling better. I’m sure the popcorn helped. I’ve never thought of making it with sesame oil. Sounds delicious!

    • The back has been a real bummer! So I thought inserting a little humor would be good! 😉 I hope you give the sesame oil a try! It’s incredibly tasty and gives the popcorn the perfect nutty flavor. Have a good week, Anne!

  2. Hope your back feels better now.  Another use for the nutty flavor of sesame oil is in coating fresh-cooked pasta so it will not stick together, even when refrigerated for later use.
