This simple stovetop popped popcorn is equally suited for an after school snack or family movie night. Give it a try if you haven't already. You will wonder what took you so long to switch from microwaved or store-bought popcorn.
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-5 servings
  • 2-3 tablespoons oil (avocado, grapeseed, coconut, olive oil)
  • ½ cup organic popping kernels
  • Sea salt to taste
  1. Place the pot on the stove and add the oil plus 3 testing kernels. Cover and cook over high or medium-high heat until the first kernel pops.
  2. Add the rest of the popcorn. Cook over medium-high heat, carefully shaking now and then. Once the kernels start popping, place the lid slightly ajar to allow steam to escape.
  3. When popping slows, turn off heat and remove from burner. Transfer the popcorn into a big bowl and add salt and additional toppings if desired. Enjoy!
