Hot Pickled Popcorn

The name might say hot, but it is not that hot.“It will burn for a minute, and then it will go away.” A blend of seasonings, along with dry dill weed, is used to flavor the mushroom popcorn variety, which has bigger and meatier kernels. The popcorn will be sold in one size — medium, which is about six cups.


This delicious, tangy popcorn is coated in an ingenious mix of pickling spices, like coriander seeds and dill weed.
