Coconut Oil Popcorn

This is the best popcorn ever.  My kids ask for it all of the time.  So easy, way healthier than the store-bought, and I promise there is no coconut flavor.

Coconut Oil Popcorn

  1. Heat a large, heavy bottom pot over medium heat. Be careful not to go over medium heat, or you may experience a very unpleasant chewy texture where the kernels were heated too fast and did not completely pop.
  2. Add the coconut oil and let it completely melt. Once the oil is completely melted put a few kernels into the pan and wait for them to pop. This helps determine when the oil is heated enough to popping.
  3. Once the test kernels have popped, place the rest of the popcorn seeds into the pan and cover.
  4. After the kernels begin popping, begin to shake every 10 seconds or so until you hear the popping slow down. When the popping slows down to a pop every 2-3 seconds remove the pan from heat and continuously shake for another 10-20 seconds. This helps the popcorn at the bottom from burning.
  5. After the 10-20 seconds, or you feel the popping is finished pour into a bowl, salt to taste and enjoy.

Nice idea to replace the regular oil with coconut oil while making popcorns. I would try these popcorns which would have a nice taste and smell of coconut in them.
