Home Popped Popcorn
One of my FAVORITE snacks is popcorn. I recently read an article about how bad it is for you from the package/from a microwavable bag, so I decided to make my own. It is SO DARN EASY. Here’s what you’ll need:
3 tablespoons of popping corn = 3 cups of popped popcorn so you figure it out!
I just made enough for 3 tablespoons worth so here’s what I used…
First, get out a pan that is large and has a lid.
Coat the bottom with the olive oil. I placed a couple tablespoons then used a paper towel to remove excess and coat the rest. Sprinkle some salt on the oil.
Put in your popping corn and make sure they are well rolled in the oil. I sprinkled a little more salt on this.
Then I set the pan on high and added in about half a tablespoon of butter then take the lid on and shook it all up.
I then left it with the lid on to get hot. They pop rather fast. Watch the pot (if its see-through it’ll be easy). Listen to the pops, when they slow down, shake it up a bit and remove. Don’t take off the lid yet, let it sit for a few minutes. I like burnt popcorn (so, sue me!) so I left mine on for a minute longer- yum.
Put in a bowl and ENJOY! These turned out delicious, and savory. Take out the butter if you want a healthier version. Much more guilt free than the from a bag kind J
