I have looked all over for "popcorn salt" and am totally baffled...I have searched here and in stores...can someone please tell me what this is and where to find it? Is there a brand name for it? How is it different than regular salt?
Thanks very much...sorry if this is elsewhere but I can't find it!

Morton makes popcorn salt, which is found in the popcorn aisle, not the baking goods aisle at the grocery store. It's a small round container (like the large morton salt container but very tiny) and is a bright blue color. It costs about a dollar and it's actually just superfine salt as opposed to table salt which has a bigger granule. Hope that helps some! icon_biggrin.gif

If you have a mortar and pestle you can make your own popcorn salt. I just grind mine in my mortar bowl until my salt is a powder consistency. No more buying superfine salt for me! I got my mortar and pestle set from Crate and Barrel.

And it sticks to foods better. We call if "french fry salt" in our house because when I make fries at home, we use this salt on the fries, because it actually sticks to the fries, instead of bouncing off of the fries like regular salt does! icon_lol.gif

Hey there aej6! Welcome to CC! Not sure from where you hail, but if you have a Walmart they keep the popcorn salt on the salt aisle --not the popcorn aisle! My Walmart sells the Morton, in a small shaker and, not with the other Morton salts, but near the Mrs. Dash type "alternatives."

HTH!

Speaking of popcorn...have you noticed that many grocery stores nowadays are only selling microwave popcorn??? No jars or bags of Orville or Jollytime or any other brand of actual popcorn!

My niece is a teacher in Waco and she brought some ears of popcorn from her dad's farm to school one day to show the kids and none of the kids even knew that popcorn grows on a cob. All they know is that their popcorn comes from microwave bags. She said they were all just in awe of REAL popcorn! LOL!

Popcorn salt is the SAME thing as pickling salt. Pickling salt is sold in boxes next to the boxes of kosher salt, near the cannisters of table salt. The price per ounce for the pickling salt is usually cheaper.

I bought some REAL popcorn a while back and made it in the pan like my mama used to do. My kids thought I was magic. My son said "Mom, you are a GENIUS!"

My grocery store sells bags of popping corn. We use an air popper to make popcorn, much healthier and tastier than the microwave stuff, not to mention soooo much cheaper. For some reason the bags of popping corn are sold in the produce section, not near the gazillion boxes of microwave popcorn.
