Excuse me; I interrupt regular scheduled blog programming to announce that tonight I’m curled up with a big bowl of homemade popcorn. Yum! I make mine with:
2-3 tablespoons organic extra virgin coconut oil
1/3 cup organic popping corn
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
Add oil and 3 kernels to a heavy saucepan with lid. Turn fire on to med-high. Once the three kernels pop, the oil’s hot. Add the salt and popcorn. Cover. Lift from fire and shake every 3-4 seconds. Remove after corn stops popping rapidly.
I also tried making kettle corn this way, which is yummy, but next time I will make it with less sugar. Popcorn is a delicious, cheap snack for anytime, any day. This version is low in sodium, high in fiber, and lightly oiled with coconut oil, which is so good for you.
