real old-fashioned popcorn
3 T. coconut oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
sea salt, to taste
if you don't have a whirly-pop, don't worry! i don't either. i used a 6-qt. stainless steel pot with a lid.
fyi, this pairs well with apple slices and m&ms.
1. add coconut oil to your pot and let heat up for a few minutes over medium heat. add 3 popcorn kernels. don't put the lid on yet.
2. when the oil is hot enough, the "tester" kernels will pop. after this happens, add the 1/2 cup kernels, put the lid on, and immediately start moving your pot around the burner. slide pan vigorously back and forth on the stove to keep the kernels moving and turning, and continue as you hear them start popping.
3. when the popping starts to slow down, turn off the heat and keep moving the pot. once the popping has slowed even more, remove from stove. air on the side of not getting all the kernels popped, rather than burning the ones that are ready. sprinkle with plenty of sea salt and pour popcorn into bowls.
happy friday, friends. have some popcorn on me.
you know where i'll be sunday night, if you care to join the fun.
