Oil – Use vegetable or coconut oil to pop the kernels.
Popcorn – I like white popcorn but you can use any kernels.
Butter – Unsalted butter is the best.
Vinegar – White vinegar or white balsamic vinegar.
Salt – I like flaky Kosher salt for this.
How to Make Salt and Vinegar Popcorn
First: In a large pot over medium heat, heat the oil. Add three kernels to the oil. Heat until they start to pop.
Second: Add the remaining kernels. Cover and shake the pot until there are about 5-8 seconds between popping or until the majority of the kernels are popped.
Third: Remove from the heat. Place the popped kernels in a large bowl.
Fourth: Melt the butter in a small bowl. Stir in the vinegar. Drizzle over the popcorn, stirring or tossing to coat. Sprinkle with salt and enjoy!

How long does it last?
Once you drizzle the melted butter on the popcorn, you will need to eat it immediately or it will get soggy.
You can pop the popcorn and make the drizzle. Just keep them separately until ready to enjoy.
How do you keep popcorn from getting soggy?
You can add the melted butter and vinegar to the oil when popping and then just sprinkle with salt. You might need to increase the amount of vinegar to get a more intense flavor.
You can also use a powdered vinegar and sprinkle it on with the salt.
Tapas Tips & Tricks
- Use a neutral oil like sunflower oil, canola oil, or coconut oil.
- You can also pop the popcorn in an air popper.
- I prefer a flaky kosher salt with large flakes but you can also use sea salt.
- Use dry kernels not microwave popcorn. The popcorn seasonings won’t stick to it.
- Store in a popcorn tin or other airtight container.
- Skip the vinegar in the melted butter and use vinegar seasoning (powder) like this one. It gets its tang from sodium diacetate and malic acid.
