Cheesy Pickle Popcorn

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m doing this monostarch thing called a Mary’s Mini and have picked corn as my starch, hence all the corny posts. Sorry. I’ve never been a fan of corn on the cob so I needed a quick snack involving corn. Well, um, popcorn, duh! My mom brought me an old popper when she came to town, sans lid, haha. I had to get creative and rig something up.


Yup, that’s my air popper in all her popcorn popping glory. It worked really well and I love avoiding excess waste, so yay!

This popcorn is super simple to make. You just need a spray bottle, popcorn kernels, pickle juice, and nutritional yeast. Use a funnel to make it easier to pour the pickle brine into the spray bottle.


Now pop your kernels, very lightly mist with the pickle juice, and sprinkle with nutritional yeast. That’s it! No recipe.


If you have a heavy hand with the spray bottle, you will have mushy corn, so go easy. I usually keep the bottle handy and mist as I go along.

The sky is the limit with flavor combinations. Lime juice and chile powder are great! The liquid drained off of a can of sweet corn with a sprinkle of cinnamon is awesome too! Let me know what flavor combos you come up with. Happy popping!
