Certainly! Here’s a simple recipe for homemade popcorn

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional toppings: melted butter, nutritional yeast, chili powder, grated Parmesan cheese, or cinnamon sugar

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Popcorn:
  • Place a large, heavy-bottomed pot on the stove over medium heat.
  • Add the vegetable oil to the pot. Allow it to heat for a minute.
  1. Test the Oil:

  • Pour in the rest of the popcorn kernels.
  • Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  1. Shake the Pot:

  • Continue shaking occasionally. The popcorn will start popping within a few minutes.
  1. Keep Shaking:
  • Once the popping slows to about 2 seconds between pops, remove the pot from the heat.
  1. Let It Sit:
  • Let the popcorn sit for a moment to ensure that any remaining kernels pop.
  1. Seasoning:
  • Remove the lid and season the popcorn with salt to taste. You can also add optional toppings like melted butter, nutritional yeast, chili powder, grated Parmesan cheese, or cinnamon sugar.
  1. Toss and Enjoy:
