For Perfect Popcorn

Get a big, heavy-bottomed pot, set it on medium-low heat.

Pour in a few tablespoons of Sunflower oil. Drop 3 kernels into the oil. Cover the pot with a lid.

Wait for the first pop. 


Pour 1/4 - 1/2 cup kernels into the hot oil.

Put the lid back on. 

Agitate the pot while the popping takes place.

Once the popping slows down and there are a couple seconds between pops, take the pot off the heat, open the lid, sprinkle with your favorite sea salt & serve. 

Fresh Herbs on a wooden tabletop

One of the best things you can get at Troeg's Brewing in Hershey, PA is the rosemary butter popcorn. 

Infuse your own Rosemary oil by following these simple steps: 

Fill an 8-oz canning jar with dried Rosemary stalks. 

Pour in Sunflower oil to cover the herbs. 

Seal the jar with a lid, and set on a windowsill for 2-6 weeks, shake it on occasion. Taste test along the way. 

Once you like the flavor, strain the oil through an old (clean) stocking into a clean, dry jar. Store in a cool, dark place. Drizzle on salted popcorn or toast or use it in salad dressing.
