Ingredients
  1. ⅓ to ½ cup yellow popcorn kernels (enough to cover the bottom of the pan in a single layer)
  2. 2 to 3 tablespoons Hojiblanca extra-virgin olive oil (enough to coat the bottom of the pan in a shallow layer)
  3. Zest of 1 small lemon, preferably organic
  4. ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  5. Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  6. Fine grain sea salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place a large serving bowl near the stove. Pour the Hojiblanca Olive Oil into a large, heavy-bottomed pan with a lid (a medium-sized Dutch oven is perfect for this).
  2. Turn the heat up to medium-low, add 2 kernels of corn, and cover.
  3. Once the kernels pop, remove the pan from heat and pour in the remaining popcorn kernels. Cover the pot and shake lightly to distribute the kernels evenly.
  4. Let the kernels warm for one minute.
  5. Cook over medium-low heat, shaking the pot occasionally.
  6. Once the kernels start popping like crazy, crack the lid so the popcorn stays crisp.
  7. Cook until the popping sound slows to about one pop per every few seconds.
  8. Remove the pan from heat and dump the popcorn into the bowl.
  9. Use a Microplane or other small grater to grate some lemon zest and Parmesan over the bowl of popcorn, to taste.
  10. Add pepper and salt to taste. Drizzle Hojiblanca extra-virgin olive oil over the top and shake to distribute among popcorn.
  11. Serve!
