The other night, in preparation for some always thrilling SNL-watching, I decided to embark on the mission of making my own popcorn. I’d never done it before, so it was an exciting expedition.
I was nervous, but I pulled through — and the result was so much better, healthier and 100x more fun than microwave popcorn!! I haven’t used a microwave in years because I don’t like to eat mutated food. That is probably a topic for another blog, but aside from that, microwave popcorn contains a lot of crap — weird dried buttery flavoring, chemicals from ink & glue on the bag…and other such grossness.

So if you want to make fresh, delicious popcorn on your stove top in minutes with all natural ingredients…read on!!
- Coconut oil
- Organic popcorn kernels
- Sea salt
Get a large pot and put it on the stove.
Cover the bottom of the pot with a layer of popcorn kernels.
Put enough oil into the pot to lightly cover all of the kernels.
Shake sea salt onto the kernels.
Put your stove on medium heat, put a cover on the pot, and lightly shake the pot back and forth over the flame! In a few minutes of shaking over the heat, you’ll start to hear the kernels pop. Make sure the pot is covered or you’ll have a massive popcorn explosion in your kitchen!
When the popcorn is done popping, add seasoning (organic butter, more sea salt, or whatever spices you like!)
Be proud that you created such a delicious, fun snack all by yourself!
