I use a butter flavored spray before adding seasonings.

I toss air-popped popcorn with homemade curry powder. The curry powder seems to stick to the popcorn (and my fingers).

Nothing sticks to your fingers like Florescent Orange Cheetoh's. That cheesey stuff makes a perfect bookmark for whatever you are currently reading. You can always tell where you left off when you accidentally fall asleep, just by looking at the page corners. I think that is what the OP is trying to achieve. Not that "I" ever eat this stuff. Ok, once in awhile

Buy popcorn spice, that stuff sticks to anything. You get loads of flavours too.

I think an old Weight Watchers trick is to very lightly spray a mist of plain old water onto popcorn to get stuff to stick to it.

recipe, spices

Making spices stick to popcorn w/o saturates Hey guys, I have been trying different methods to make spices stick to popcorn without butter, oil or any other liquids that contain saturated fats. My aim is to use a spray to release a diluted solution which has a grounded spice mixed into it such as cumin - but note that I haven't used a spray yet to try this as had problems getting an appropriate one so I'm not sure how well it'll work. However, let's assume the spray works, now I have the problem of what liquid to use. At first I thought water on it's own would be enough but then I thought that this might lead the pop corn to becoming more wet, with less of a sticky action. I haven't yet tried this as I said because I need to get a spray, nonetheless I would appreciate suggestions about ways to spray spices on popcorn. The obvious method of just sprinkling it on is that it ends at the bottom. Much appreciated as it's been a real head scratcher for me for many weeks now and I'm very fond of popped corn. In particular, are there any molecular ingredients that can be added to a water solution to increase stickiness such as lecithin, except this ingredient if I understand correctly leads to the opposite effect of non-stick. 3 stars 1 reviews
