All You Need to Know About Making Salt and Vinegar Popcorn

What better party treat than a bowl of popcorn? Since people are broadening their view over popcorn, you may be surprised that popcorn could be a healthy option for snacking.  In fact, there are lots of popcorn variations; from simple salt-and-butter to sweet and funky popcorn. Some people might only know certain seasonings of popcorn yet you can actually dress up this crowd-pleasing snack with any combination; sweet, salty, spicy or tangy.  

This time, we will take a look at some information about how mouthwatering salt and vinegar popcorn could be.  Tossed in sea salt (kosher) and powdered vinegar, this variation of popcorn can be your healthy alternative to your favorite potato chips. 

What is The Best Popcorn Salt?

When it comes to popcorn, you will not find it enough since it is easy, cheap and of course a delicious type of snack. To begin a fancy topping of popcorn, you will need salt. However, you cannot just randomly pick any salt to expect great results.  In fact, your popcorn will not be as good as it looks once you choose some improper salt on top. Therefore, regular salt is way different from popcorn salt which is from finer salt grains. 

The fine salt grains are supposed to look like the grains of the sand you find on the beach. Besides, the salt you need for better result of popcorn must be ‘real salt’. As we know that table salt has its trace minerals removed while real salt contains 60 trace minerals.  Trace mineral is unique mineral that gives flavor and nutrition content to the salt.

What is Vinegar Powder?

Before pointing out the recipe of salt and vinegar popcorn, let us talk about the vinegar powder earlier.  Basically, salt and vinegar popcorn needs only three ingredients; salt, vinegar, and popped popcorn. However, some people might be wondering what vinegar powder would look like. 

Vinegar powder is an essentially dehydrated vinegar that can be used without adding extra liquid. Vinegar is used to be an ingredient of potato chips though it might not be enough.  It was still possible back then to soak potato chips in vinegar but it is no way to soak in popcorn. Yet, vinegar powder helps you get perfect savory popcorn by tossing in it.
