If you haven’t tried brown butter before, I really hope this Brown Butter & Honey Popcorn is the recipe that makes you excited to try it!

The first recipe that got me curious about brown butter was this Brown Butter Buttermilk Syrup from Two Peas & Their Pod. This stuff is amazing and it opened my eyes to the deliciousness of brown butter. After the flood gates were opened, I started trying any recipe I found that used brown butter. I was hooked!

Since butter and popcorn go hand-in-hand, it only makes sense to include brown butter in a recipe for the 14 Days of Popcorn series. And what better way to highlight the nuttiness of brown butter than with honey! I used a blond raw honey, but any good honey would be delicious. The honey and the brown butter really compliment each other and are the perfect topping for popcorn.

Browning butter sounds like a big deal, but it is not. To brown butter, all you need to do is heat the butter in a small saucepan on medium high heat until it melts, then bubbles, then it starts to foam up, then the foam goes away and the butter starts to brown.

You will notice little bits of brown stuck to the bottom of the pan and the butter will smell nutty. You do have to watch carefully so you do not burn the butter (which is definitely not delicious). But other than not getting distracted, this recipe is super easy and delicious.

Browned butter is so amazing - just cooked enough for more flavour, but not enough to burn! I'm adoring this series! So many options!
