EASY make your own Old Fashioned Popcorn


Old Fashioned Pop Corn

Have you ever made popcorn on the stove? It’s so much better than the microwave kind, or even air pop for that matter. The kernels pop up light, fluffy and crisp.

It’s so easy to make and you can keep it healthy by simply adding a touch of salt, or a sprinkle of flavors, or you can make it as a very special treat by drizzling melted butter over the top.

Anyway you dress it up, it will be delectable.


 Home Style Popcorn on the Stove


Popcorn Kernels (do check the date for freshness, it does go stale)

Coconut Oil or any oil you prefer. I chose coconut oil for it’s health benefits and fabulous taste.

Your choice of topping

Large pan with lidTo the large pan, over medium to medium high heat, add 2 Tbl. of coconut oil, or preferred oil, and allow to melt

put on the lid.When the oil is melted, add in 2 kernels of popcorn and When you hear the popcorn kernels pop, take them out Now add in 1/2 cup of  popcorn kernels  

Put the lid on and move the pan back and forth over the burner. This keeps the popcorn from burning on the bottomKeep the pan moving and when you hear the popcorn popping slowing down, take off heat and wait until there is no more popping sound to avoid getting burned from a stray popping kernel.  Pour out and enjoy with melted butter, salt or any of your favorite seasonings.
