Brad Makes Fermented Popcorn Seasoning | It's Alive | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Oct 10, 2019
  • Bon Appétit’s Brad Leone is back for episode 57 of “It’s Alive,” and this time he’s making fermented popcorn seasoning! Brad dehydrates and blends sauerkraut, kimchi, and miso into his own custom fermented spice blend. Join Brad as he learns about alchemy, 90s fitness fads, and faces off with his greatest foe yet… the microwave.

    Join Bon Appétit Test Kitchen host Brad Leone on a wild, roundabout, and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to experiment with fermented and live foods yourself.

    What brand of white miso did you use? I can't eat dairy anymore and I've been trying to find a smart pop substitute and this seems like a good option.

    Watching brad is like watching a protagonist go on adventures and each person he meets teaches him a valuable lesson whilst he also teaches them.

    stovetop popcorn literally takes 2 minutes and no special equipment....I can't believe he went through all the time and trouble to make amazing fermented toppings and put them on top of microwave popcorn. Sacrilege!
    on a side note. I need to make a margarita with kimchi powder on the rim. who's with me?

    Who ever that edits these episodes, I friggin love you! Where else can I get silly jokes, suspense, horror, and food in one show? And I love how random and scattered brain Brad is (while still being able to do what he's supposed to do), it really caters to my humour I involuntarily developed on 9Gag during my formative years.

    Brad IDK if you’re aware but you can actually make your own microwave popcorn. Just put 1/4 c popcorn kernels and a teeny bit of oil in a brown paper lunch bag. Fold the lunch bag over a couple times and put face down in the microwave, then cook just like you’d cook normal microwave popcorn. Like 3:30 minutes or until there’s 1-2 seconds between pops.
    You can also do it without oil and it still works really well. You just might have a couple unpopped kernels.
