Truffle Cracked Pepper

To make Truffle Cracked Pepper Popcorn using a glass microwave popper, follow this recipe. This method is perfect for a luxurious twist on a classic snack, incorporating the rich, earthy flavors of truffle oil with the sharp bite of cracked black pepper. Here’s how to make it:


Ingredients:

- ½ cup of high-quality popping corn kernels

- 2-3 tablespoons truffle oil (to taste)

- Salt (preferably flaky sea salt or kosher salt), to taste

- Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste


Equipment:

- Glass microwave popcorn popper


Instructions:


1. **Prepare the Popcorn Kernels:**

- Measure ½ cup of popcorn kernels and pour them into your glass microwave popper.


2. **Microwave Popping:**

- Place the lid on the popper, then microwave on high. The exact time may vary depending on your microwave, but it generally takes around 2-4 minutes. Listen closely and stop the microwave when the popping slows down to 1-2 pops per second to avoid burning the popcorn.


3. **Drizzle with Truffle Oil:**

- Carefully remove the popper from the microwave using oven mitts (it will be hot). Drizzle the truffle oil over the hot popcorn. The heat will help spread the truffle aroma throughout. Start with 2 tablespoons of truffle oil, toss well, and taste. Add more if desired for a stronger truffle flavor.


4. **Season with Salt and Cracked Pepper:**

- Sprinkle salt over the popcorn to taste. Use freshly cracked black pepper for the best flavor, adding it generously or to your preference. Toss the popcorn well to ensure even coating of the truffle oil, salt, and pepper.


5. **Serve and Enjoy:**

- Once fully tossed and seasoned, serve the popcorn immediately while it’s still warm to enjoy the full flavor profile of the truffle oil and spices.


### Tips:

- **Adjust Seasonings:** The amount of truffle oil, salt, and pepper can be adjusted based on your taste preferences. Truffle oil is potent, so start with a little and add more as needed.

- **Use High-Quality Ingredients:** The simplicity of this recipe means the quality of the ingredients really shines through. Opt for high-quality truffle oil and fresh black peppercorns for the best flavor.

- **Storage:** If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container to keep the popcorn as fresh as possible.


Enjoy your luxurious Truffle Cracked Pepper Popcorn, perfect for movie nights, as a gourmet snack, or whenever you crave a sophisticated twist on a classic treat!
