October is National Popcorn Popping Month.

Never allowing a proper holiday to go to waste, here is my opportunity to celebrate popcorn which is one of the four major food groups in my family. AI bit of butter and salt is all good popcorn needs, however, if you eat it as often as we do, you need to acknowledge that butter and salt every night is not a good thing.  I crafted some herbal popcorn sprinkles that one can use instead of salt or with salt in moderation which will allow you to enjoy popcorn as often as I do!

Italian Sprinkle

1 Tbls. Basil
1 Tbls. Marjoram
1 Tbls. Oregano
½ Tbls. Garlic granules
1 tsp. rosemary
Parmesan Cheese to taste (about 2 Tbls. is good)

Blend together and place in a shaker.  Sprinkle over warm popcorn just out of the popper.

Greek Sprinkle

1 Tbls. lavender
1 Tbls. rosemary
1 Tbls. Greek Oregano
1 Tbls. Garlic, granulated
1 Tbls. Lemon peel or Lemon pepper

These Mediterranean or Greek herbs make a great addition to popcorn with a unique flavor.  Keep in a shaker for quick use.

Backyard Patch Popcorn Seasoning, a savory blend!
Mexican Sprinkle

1 Tbls. Chili Powder
1 Tbls. Cumin powder
1 Tbls. Garlic flakes
1 Tbls. Onion granulated
½ Tbls. Parsley
½ Tbls. Thyme
½ Tbls. Oregano
½ Tbls. coriander, ground

Combine and keep in a shaker.  If you like things hot add some cayenne or red pepper flakes.

So enjoy your popcorn this month.
