Popcorn is such a great snack to enjoy.  And it is so easy to make at home.

Less than five years ago my husband purchased an on-the-stove-top popper for us to use, replacing the air popper I had used prior.   It is so easy to use.   (I haven’t used microwave popcorn in a long, long time as I find this to be so much tastier —- and it is so much healthier!)

Here is how I make a batch of popcorn:

  • Put 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil in the bottom of the popcorn popper.
  • Place on medium heat and add three kernels of popcorn.
  • Heat until the three kernels pop.
  • Add 1/2 cup of popcorn and 2 tablespoons butter to the popper.
  • Allow to sit about thirty seconds and then start turning handle/crank.
  • Continue turning handle/crank until popcorn stops popping and remove from heat.
  • Pour into bowl and top with salt and any other seasonings you like.

Clean up is a breeze with warm water, a little dish soap and a sponge or dishcloth before allowing to air dry.

We use the Jiffy brand white popcorn that is available in most stores; I get mine for around $2 a bag for 2 pounds at Walmart. It is gluten free and non-GMO!  You can read about it here:   http://www.jollytime.com/popcorn-products/kernels/white-unpopped-kernels
