Dill Pickle Popcorn is a snack you must try if you love the store-bought version!
Dill Pickle Popcorn
I had to try to make this Dill Pickle Popcorn after I stumbled upon the Aldi version and tried it. Oh My, Y’all. It is SO good.
If you’re interested in trying the store-bought version before you make your own, you can find it easily on the snack aisle at Aldi. I have also seen it with the seasonal stuff, during the summer months. If you like Dill Pickle flavored snacks, they are a must. I also like their Dill Pickle Flavored Cashews, which are with the 100 calorie snacks. Seriously, I could eat way too much of this stuff.
I liked the idea of making my own for a couple reasons. For one, the store-bought stuff doesn’t stay fresh for very long. I have always noticed that about bagged, pre-made popcorn.
And two, I wanted the option of having Dill Pickle Popcorn just like I do regular popcorn- warm and freshly made when we are about to sit down to watch a movie at home!
What You Need:
This is not a recipe with a ton of odd ingredients you have to buy! And, if you make your own popcorn often, you probably won’t have to buy anything extra.
First, gather your popcorn ingredients. You can make your popcorn according to the package directions, which usually includes butter, vegetable oil, or coconut oil.
We use coconut oil, pictured below, but for this recipe you can use what you normally do for homemade popcorn. No need to buy the coconut oil if you don’t already have it in the pantry! 🙂
Coconut oil doesn’t taste any different when used in cooking, and it is widely considered to be a healthier alternative to regular cooking oils.
Dill Flavoring for Dill Pickle Popcorn
Now for the dill seasoning! I add my Dill Pickle Seasoning AFTER I cook the popcorn, but you can also add a dash to the Popcorn Popper to let it cook with the flavoring, if that’s what you prefer.
If you grow your own Dill in the garden- great! You can dry it in the oven (or dehydrate using a kitchen appliance like the Ninja Foodi), and use it to make your own Dill Pickle Seasoning.
If that’s a little too involved- which I understand!– using dried dill from the grocery store works just fine. I have been known to have both in the kitchen! We love our large vegetable garden, so for now I am using fresh dill I’ve dried and have prepared.
I use my Homemade Dill Pickle Seasoning to flavor meats, to go in dips, and of course make this irresistible Dill Pickle Popcorn. You can follow the link above to get that recipe.
Fair warning, although the Dill Pickle Seasoning is absolutely amazing, it does take some ingredients you may have to find at the store or order on amazon. For example, you might not have White Vinegar Powder or Citric Acid readily available in the pantry.
If that’s you– it’s OK! You can always use pre-made Dill Pickle Seasoning if you don’t want to make your own.
I love making my own since I try to stay with natural ingredients and avoid those store-bought mixes when possible.
Salt Your Popcorn Before You Cook:
As always, salt that popcorn!! Even when using the Dill Pickle Spice afterwards, I aded a little Popcorn Salt prior to cooking.
Homemade Popcorn Recipes usually call for salt on the package, so I have this Flavacol Popcorn Seasoning Salt in the pantry to add to it. This carton lasts forever, even if you make your own popcorn often.
Adding Dill Pickle Spice:
After you make your popcorn, generously add your Dill Pickle Seasoning to the entire bowl or just to your own bowl –if everyone wants different flavored popcorn, like we do here. LOL.
To add to the entire bowl. use about 1-2 tsp, cover the popcorn with lid, and gently toss. And enjoy!
