  2. When corn begins to pop, shake the pot constantly. When popping slows, remove from heat, sprinkle with sesame seeds and transfer kettle corn to a bowl.

Loved the five-spice with popcorn, but the flavor was overpowered by the salt. Next time I'll only use 1/2 salt. Highly suggest five spice from Penzeys, it's so much better than others I've tried. We make lots of stovetop popcorn, and a whirly pop makes a huge difference especially for anything with sugar. Pops evenly without burning every time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was definately different, but very good! I loved the sesame flavor(I used Gomashio (Toasted Sesame Salt)-a toasted sesame salt. And the five spices really kicked it up a notch! Thanks! Made for PRMR game.
