Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels (or 8 cups popped, unsalted light butter popcorn)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon dried lemon peel , finely chopped or grated (or sub 1 teaspoon lemon pepper)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt , to taste

Instructions
 

  • To dry your lemon peel, use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin. Try not to remove the white part.
  • Set the peels inside facing up on a clean surface and allow to dry at room temperature for 3-4 days or until firm and shriveled. Alternatively, spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 200° F for 20-30 minutes or until curled and dry.
  • To prepare popcorn, drizzle olive oil over warm popcorn, sprinkle with toppings and toss well to coat.

Notes

To avoid overindulgence, pre-portion in snack sized storage bags. 2-3 cups make the perfect snack!
