For those who have all their ducks in a row (or at least enjoy a good duck dish on the menu), this decadent popcorn is for you. Enjoy the same ducky deliciousness of duck fat fries in popcorn form with this simple recipe.
- ⅔ cup popcorn kernels
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 6 tablespoons duck fat, melted
- 1-2 sprigs rosemary, destemmed
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- Fresh ground pepper, to taste
To pop popcorn on the stovetop, use a heavy-bottomed pan with a tight-fitting lid. Heat canola oil, 2 tablespoons duck fat and 3-4 kernels over medium heat, covered. When test kernels pop, add remaining kernels and cover.
Remove pot from heat and shake with lid on for 30 seconds. Return to stove over medium-high heat. Jiggle pot every few seconds to let popped kernels rise and unpopped kernels sink to the bottom. Vent lid after shaking so steam can escape and popcorn won’t be soggy. Remove pot from heat when pops slow to every 5 seconds.
Melt remaining duck fat, then toss hot popcorn with melted duck fat and sprinkle with rosemary, salt and pepper.
