Buttered popcorn is delicious, so why not popcorn butter? This compound butter is not only delicious on fresh-baked bread or toast, it’s surprisingly tasty on basmati rice, or stirred into a pot of creamy risotto.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsalted popped popcorn
  • 4 oz. (8 Tbs.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp. flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
