Making popcorn around the warmth of the campfire just might become your new favorite activity.

While you could certainly stick to a drizzle of butter for a classic topping, the options to get

creative with other toppings are endless. Next up in combos to try? Rosemary Parmesan

Popcorn.

Thanks to the addition of finely grated parmesan, you’ll get a cheesy, melty snack with plenty of

flavor in every handful. It’s salty yet well-balanced, without the rosemary being too

overpowering. Trust us, it’s addictive.

Equipment

Solo Stove Fire Pit, Popcorn Maker

Ingredients

2/3 cup white popcorn kernels

6 tablespoons canola oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

6 to 8 sprigs fresh rosemary, minced

1 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

Step 1: Build a Fire

Build a fire in your Solo Stove fire pit. Start by burning 3-4 logs, or more for a larger fire pit,

allowing them to reduce down just about to a low to medium rolling flame with hot coals.

Step 2: Prep the popcorn kernels

Pour the oil into the popcorn maker. Add the kernels and toss to combine. This recipe calls for

two batches of popcorn. Make each separately in the popcorn maker, with 1/3 cup of popcorn

kernels and 3 tablespoons of canola oil each.

Step 3: Prep the rosemary butter

In a pot, melt the butter and add in the minced rosemary, reserving 1 teaspoon. Allow it to infuse

into the butter.

Step 4: Pop the popcorn

Holding the long handle of the popcorn maker, place the popper over the fire pit, two to three

inches above the flame ring. Hold the popcorn maker over the heat until you hear the oil sizzle

and the first kernel pop. Gently shake the popcorn maker over the heat until the kernels have

popped.

Step 5: Season the popcorn

Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl. Drizzle with the melted rosemary butter and top with

grated parmesan and salt to taste. Mix with your hands or a large spatula. Garnish the popcorn

with an additional sprinkle of parmesan cheese and the remaining fresh minced rosemary.
