16 cupsunbuttered, unsalted popped popcorn
1egg white
1/4 cupsugar
1/4 tspsalt
1/4 tsplemon extract
2 tsplemon zest

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper (or foil sprayed with cooking spray).  Spread popcorn onto prepared baking sheet (remove any unpopped kernels).
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg white, sugar, salt and lemon extract until foamy.  Pour over popcorn and toss to coat evenly.
  • Bake 20 minutes, stirring once midway through baking time.  Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Note: The use of egg white helps the flavors adhere to the popcorn, without adding fat through the more traditional use of oils
