Coconut oil popcorn

    10 min

    Try using coconut oil to pop your corn instead of butter or vegetable oil. It adds a lovely flavour.

    1. Place popcorn and oil in a heavy-based pot over medium heat; cover the pot with a lid. Shake the pot constantly as popcorn pops. When popping slows to a few seconds in-between pops, after about 3 to 5 minutes, remove pot from heat and pour popcorn into a large bowl. Season with sea salt.

    This is a wonderfully tasty recipe. I have been doing something similar for a couple years now. I air pop the popcorn and then pour melted coconut oil with a little Himalayan salt over it and mix. Sometimes just to change it up I will add a little ground mustard, turmeric, and black pepper. We love this. You need to come up with your own amounts as everyone has differing tastebuds. Give the basic recipe a try and then change it up every once in a while. Hint- a little lime is good added to the basic recipe with Himalayan salt! Granulated garlic is good also. I like to add any seasonings to the melted coconut oil to help them distribute through the popped corn. Get creative!  -  09 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very good! I've been doing this for a while. I also transfer the cooked popcorn in two batches to a big plastic bowl with a cover. Over each batch I drizzle a small amount of additional coconut oil, salt and then cover and shake it up to more evenly distribute. I just made some, and with the salt I also added some dried minced garlic, black pepper and nutritional yeast. Try whatever spices appeal to you, but in small amounts, because they can overpower.  -  07 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
