There’s nothing like the taste of freshly popped popcorn and nothing like the disappointment of burnt popcorn or too many unpopped kernels.  If you’ve ever made popcorn chances are you’ve bungled a batch.  Follow these simple steps and you’ll have nearly perfect popcorn every time. The best tip is to stay near and play it by ear.  Literally.  The sound of popcorn popping is your best clue to when it’s ready.

Stovetop Popcorn Tips

Step 1: Pour enough vegetable oil (for coconut oil about 2 Tablespoons) to just cover the bottom of a pan, turn on medium high heat.  Allow pan to warm. The best popping temperature is between 400 and 460 degrees F. Oil burns at 500 degrees. If your oil starts to smoke, it’s too hot.

Step 2: Add enough kernels to cover the bottom of the pan single layer, shake to coat the kernels with oil, and cover with lid (too many kernels will “blow” the lid).

Step 3: Corn will begin to pop within 3 minutes. When the popping slows, listen until you can count 2 seconds between pops. Turn off heat and remove pan from stove-top.  Lift the lid to allow steam to escape away from your face.  Steam may burn and remaining kernels may continue to pop.

Step 4: Add additional flavors, herbs, or spices and Enjoy
