Best Stovetop Popcorn in bowlI used to hate making popcorn from scratch on the stove because it would pop unevenly, leaving many unpopped kernels and some of the popcorn burnt. But after finding out how unhealthy microwaved popcorn is, I started my popcorn investigation and have found this is the best method for stovetop popcorn.

*You will need a 3 quart pot with a lid

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp coconut, peanut, or canola oil
  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • salt (optional)
  • garlic powder (optional)
  • cayenne powder (optional)

Steps:

  1. Heat the oil in your pot on medium high heat. If using coconut oil like I did, allow it to melt all the way.
  2. melting coconut oil in pan
     
  3. Put just a few kernels into the oil.

  5. When the kernels pop, it means your oil is ready.

  7. Removed the popped pieces. Add the rest of the 1/3 cup of kernels in an even layer to the pot. Cover, remove from heat and count 30 seconds. (This is so the kernels can all reach the same temperature and pop evenly at the same time!)

  9. Return pot to heat. The popcorn will begin to pop, then all at once. Gently shake the pot by moving it back and forth over the burner. Try to keep the lid slightly ajar to let the steam from the popcorn release. Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pot from heat and transfer to a large serving bowl. It will have enough oil from the cooking process that you do not need to coat it with any other oil or butter, but you can if you want to! I just dash a bit of salt, garlic powder, and cayenne on top and mix it with a spoon. So perfect!
