Homemade "Holiday Tin" Flavored Popcorn

Pop Corn Recipe

Make your own flavored versions of this traditional holiday treat at home.

Recipe courtesy of Kasey Martin, J. Lohr Wine Club & Member Services Director

Yield: 12-14 cups


  • 4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup popcorn kernels, divided
  • ½ tsp. salt (or to taste)
  • 3 tsp. curry powder


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. After the oil is hot, add the popcorn kernels and salt to the oil, and then shake the pot to gently toss the kernels until they are well coated. Cover with a splatter screen or a lid that is placed slightly ajar to allow the steam to escape.
  2. Cook until the popcorn popping frequency slows to several seconds between pops. Remove from heat and toss in the curry powder and shake pot. Taste and adjust salt as needed.
  3. Pour into a large bowl and enjoy with the J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay.


Here’s a couple, fun alternate flavors. Omit the curry powder.
