This was taken out of the book “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Natural Magick” by Miria Liguana and Nina Metzner. If you like this recipe, please buy the book.
“Wind food” is, of course, light and airy. Popcorn is the perfect Wind treat. Although you can use microwave popcorn, a Natural Wizard would most likely use “real’ kernels popped in a vegetable oil to avoid eating all the chemicals added to the microwave varieties. Remember, eat as close to the Earth as possible, to more easily connect to its energy.
- 3 tbsps vegetable oil
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup popcorn kennels
Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat and stir in spices. Add one kernel to the pan and cover. When the kernel pops, pour in the remaining kernels. Shake the pan until popping ends. Season with salt and serve immediately. This recipe will ad passion to a relationship and enthusiasm to a family gathering, and is a good recipe for attracting the Lady of the South Wind.
This recipe doesn’t work as well with air-popped popcorn because the spices don’t stick to the dry kernels. If you prefer air-popped popcorn, try spreading it out on a cookie sheet and spraying it lightly with butter-flavored cooking spraybefore tossing on the spices.
