Rocambole Garlic Popcorn

Try different flavor combinations. Olive oil with rosemary and sea salt or chile infused oil to make a pleasantly spicy batch of popcorn, this batch is made with a few bulbs of Rocambole garlic. There are many options you can try, but my favorite kind of endorsement is the clean plate testimonial.

2 Tbsp Olive Oil 
1 Garlic Clove – sliced paper thin with a garlic slicer 
1/2 Cup Popcorn Kernels 
1 Tbsp Sea Salt – ground to a fine powder in a mortar & pestle
