Stovetop popcorn is one of our favorite snacks! We perfected this recipe and it tastes even better than movie theatre popcorn since it’s not overly salty! We also make it healthier with coconut oil, and using organic kernels.
We gave up microwaved popcorn years ago for this easy to make and frugal recipe since microwave popcorn is both high in sodium, and the coating it’s made from is scary unhealthy.
It seems hard, but it’s easy! Over time you’ll get accustomed to popping the corn perfectly. I can now do it so nary a kernel is left in the bottom of the pot! Once you perfect your own stovetop recipe you can come up with a variety of flavors with spices, and other toppings! (bacon popcorn anyone?)
Tip: Keep your unpopped kernels in the freezer-this helps them pop!
