We simply adore popcorn! We enjoy it so much that we offer nearly a dozen unique varieties, from huge and fluffy mushroom popcorn kernels, to all-natural blue popcorn kernels, to petite ladyfinger popcorn kernels.

When popping up a batch of popcorn, we love to use organic coconut oil to give our snack a little something special. Popping corn in organic coconut oil gives the popcorn a rich, delicious flavor that’s similar to movie theater popcorn. Additionally, organic coconut oil is packed with healthy vitamins, minerals and fats, and it’s free of cholesterol and trans fats.

To start, heat a large saucepan on the stove  over medium heat. Add 1 to 2 tbsp. of organic coconut oil to the pan, and allow the oil to melt completely. Place one kernel of unpopped popcorn in the saucepan and cover the pan.

When the kernel of popcorn pops, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels to the saucepan and replace the lid. Shake the saucepan gently over the burner, and wait for the popcorn to pop. When the popping sounds slow and there’s about five seconds between each pop, remove the popcorn from the heat.

Pour the popped popcorn in a bowl and, if desired, toss the popcorn with an additional tablespoon of organic coconut oil. Salt the popcorn lightly and serve it immediately.

What are some of your favorite ways to make popcorn?
