While being impulsive and reckless in some cases can be detrimental – like in a fantasy series called A Song Of Fire & Ice, in the kitchen, it’s like the missing secret ingredient. It’s the thin red line between a good meal and an epic one, just like an amazing scene in the life changing movies.
I won’t lie. This tangy concoction of Maison Orphee Organic Balsamic Vinegar from Jules Wellness, raw organic honey and Himalayan pink salt was destined for pearl onions and bamboo skewers. Then later I would topple those charred jewels onto some arugula, watermelon and perhaps even some goat’s milk feta.
The rain these last few days has been a twist of fate, instead of heading to my roof top I decided to catch up on Game of Thrones. The penultimate episode of every season requires some cushioning; it’s usually where all my hopes and dreams go to die as George RR Martin wipes of yet another beloved character from the face of Westeros and surrounding continents.
In this case my best line of defense was some freshly made popcorn and while the salt from my tears normally suffices every year come episode nine, in this instance I went one step further.
As I tossed those kernels with balsamic vinegar, honey and pink salt, part of me said take that Game of Thrones! Martin et al might ruin my life on yet another June Sunday, but I have this popcorn and it’s delicious and Westeros isn’t real, it isn’t real – even though deep inside I know winter is coming. My hubby calls this stuff dragon corn. Bring on the finale.
6 cups of freshly made popcorn (or try Neal’s Brother’s Organic Popcorn)
1tsp coconut oil
1tbsp raw organic honey
1tbsp Maison Orphee Organic Balsamic Vinegar
Freshly ground Himalayan pink salt, to taste
Place your popcorn in a large bowl.
In a bain-marie melt the coconut oil with the honey and add the vinegar and salt.
Once you have a glossy concoction, toss together with the popcorn and serve.
