Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons white miso paste
  • 6 Cups popped popcorn
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds

Directions

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large pan, set over medium-heat, melt the butter and sugar together, stirring occasionally. Bring the mixture to the boil, and stop stirring, leaving it to boil for 2-3 minutes, until it turns a light brown caramel color.

Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the miso paste.

Fold in the popcorn, and stir gently until coated in caramel. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Divide the mixture between baking sheets, and spread it out with a spoon. Let cool completely before eating.

Salt Shopping Tip

Salt enhances food by adding depth and accentuating existing flavors. Be sure to have a couple types in your cupboards. Regular iodized salt for the table is typical; sea salt is also a great investment.

Salt Cooking Tip

Bland food is never good. Be sure to season every layer of your food while cooking.
