You can adjust the flavor on a whim…simply add more or less rose water.

For added flavor I pop my corn in coconut oil. If you are into coconut like me, then you will love the subtle, silky, coconutty flavor.

If not then use a more neutral flavored Canola or Grape seed oil.

I took a whole lot of photos.

I also munched on popcorn as I worked.

You can either dry your own edible flowers….or get some from a trusted source in town or online.

You want to make sure that the petals you use are free of dyes and pesticides. Organic is best.

Pretty Rose Popcorn

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings

Pretty Rose Popcorn

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Unrefined Coconut Oil or Sunflower Oil
  • 1/3 cup Popcorn
  • 2-3 droppers full Vanilla Stevia Drops
  • Fine Sea Salt
  • Organic Dried Rose Petals
  • Rose Water, add to taste

Method

  • Heat the oil and popcorn in a large, deep metal pot over high heat. Have the pot lid and a large bowl handy. The oil will sizzle and the popcorn will start to pop. Cover with the lid and agitate/slide the pan around vigorously. When about to overflow dump the popcorn into the bowl. Continue to do this until all of the popcorn is popped. If you are using a large enough pot you might not need the bowl.
  • When the popcorn is cool toss with sea salt, vanilla stevia drops, petals and rose water.
  • Note
  • Careful with the rose water, use it sparingly. You can always add more but you cannot take it away. Subtle flavors are best here. You can sprinkle it on and toss with your hands for best results.

Gorgeous, Marla! I like how you featured that pretty aqua-blue vintage Ball Mason jar in your photos…I adore mine and it makes frequent appearances in my photography as well! Love to pop popcorn using either coconut oil or sunflower oil (expeller-pressed as it is not overly refined like canola). Fabulous concept for popcorn! LOVE! xo

I have a bag of culinary rose petals in my cupboard leftover from a rose petal jelly recipe I made last year and I’ve been wondering what to do with the rest of it. Now I know! What a great idea. Looks delicious!
