My husband is the popcorn maker in the family. Since I have been with him microwave popcorn is a thing of the past! Nothing is better than old fashion popped popcorn…. Hmm unless you cover it in brown butter!! After trying some amazing brown butter rosemary popcorn at our favorite hometown restaurant, I knew had to figure out how to make it myself. Wow there is something amazing about almost letting butter burn it gets a great nutty flavor. I use to get to just sit back and wait for Corey to bring me the popcorn but now we are addicted to brown butter so I get to help!

Brown butter, rosemary popcorn

you will need
8 cups Popped Popcorn (1/4 cup kernels unpopped)
¾ cup Butter
1 tablespoon Rosemary, finely chopped
Sea salt
Melt your butter in a sauce pan (not a dark pan, you want to see the color) over medium heat. It will start to foam, stir often, watch until solids turn nut-brown and butter smells toasty, 3-5 more minutes. It can turn from nutty brown to burnt quickly, always watch, and if think getting to close remove from heat.

Add rosemary to butter, stir and let sit for a bit so the rosemary flavor gets infused into the butter.

Drizzle half the butter mixture over the popped popcorn, stir, and pour the remaining butter. Toss with sea salt and then enjoy with plenty of napkins!
