What Goes on Popcorn?

What's the best way to prepare and top popcorn? "If you're popping in oil, some of the tastiest popcorn I've ever had was popped in peanut oil and seasoned with a tiny bit of salt," says toodie jane. "Marvelous!" martin blanchard sometimes pops "with bacon grease, sometimes with olive oil, and [I] use Old Bay as seasoning."

enbell likes popcorn topped with nutritional yeast, and ferret likes it with bacon salt (no fat—just bacon-flavored salt). achtungpv likes popcorn topped with spicy ranch dressing mix—just the powder. maxie suggests a mixture of olive oil, crushed red pepper, and orange zest.

"I've given this suggestion before, but I put balsamic vinegar in a spray bottle and use that," says burlgurl. "It's really really good with a little salt....it can make a few kernels a little soggy, but great flavour with no extra fat/calories."
