    You can also use pickling salt for popcorn - it's available at any grocery store. It's finer than kosher salt or table salt.

    So I made this, exactly like he did. I burned it a tiny bit, but whatever. Overall, it was ok. not super flavorful, and in my opinion it left a bad aftertaste. The Lao gon ma is very savory by itself, but it seems like you need more... something. It just doesn't translate super well to popcorn. It just kinda tastes like someone put some chili powder in popcorn. It's not *bad*, but I don't plan on making it again. I do however have a recipe for wok KETTLE corn that I made and it's delicious. 1/2 cup kernels, 1 1/2 tsp theatre salt, 3 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 4 tbsp white sugar. Heat the oil over super high heat with the kernels and salt mixed in. Once the oil starts sizzling, add the sugars and cover, shaking in a circular motion the entire time it's cooking. This burns FAST, so watch out. As soon as the popcorn gets to its height of popping, when it really gets going, take it off the heat and keep shaking. Get it out of the hot wok fast and into a bowl. Enjoy hot.

    So I actually read the Terms & Conditions. It's just the Apple T&C, but with "Apple" replaced with "Pepcorn". This is great and all, but there are grammatical errors, since there's multiple uses of "An Pepcorn", instead of the proper "A Pepcorn". I don't know why I did this. You're welcome.
