When you are self-employed, it is difficult to know when to stop. To know the boundary between home and work. This often involves an overload of work, with stress, burnout….
This summer, for the first time since I started freelancing (2 years), I took some time off to settle down and enjoy the present moment. With my other half (who is also a self-entrepreneur), we watched all the Marvel films. So, even if we worked all day, the evening was dedicated to a “cinema” session with meal & film, and no work! It was really a great idea (thanks to you ♥), and it gave me a break before the very busy September period that awaited me
To accompany these film evenings, I looked for recipe ideas, and of course homemade popcorn came first! I thought it would be difficult, but in the end, it’s a very simple recipe! After searching (and trying) different recipes, I came up with my own version. Bon appétit ♥
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon of oil
- 90 g corn
- In a saucepan, put the butter and oil. Heat over low heat.
- Wait for bubbles to form.
- Add the corn grains and mix with a spatula so that all the grains are soaked.
- Close the lid of the pan, and cook over low heat.
- Every 5 minutes, shake your pan while holding the lid firmly. This will prevent the bottom popcorn (or uncooked corn grain) from burning.
- The corn grains will turn into popcorn and make a lot of noise. Do not open the cover (risk of splashing).
- Continue to shake your pan with the lid on, even when the corn kernels are set.
- When there is no more noise in the pan, open gently to check the condition of the grains.
- Pour the popcorn into a bowl.
- For seasoning: add salt or sugar in quantity to flavour the popcorn!
