popcorn // day 5 out of 27

can we just be real for a second?

popcorn is amazing.

no really, I love popcorn.

when I was in high school, I would literally eat it for lunch sometimes.

it’s just that good.

however, I think we all know that the in-store, pre-bagged stuff comes loaded with chemicals and unwanted unknown mystery stuff. (and who wants that?!)

so, today I bring you the most lovely recipe of all the recipes: stovetop popcorn!

it’s probably the easiest thing you’ll ever make- plus, it’s way healthier, and way tastier (yep!), than bagged popcorn!

I mean seriously… look at that… โค

I’m sitting here, munching as I type, and it’s awesome because my fingers have NONE of that buttery-greasy yuck that comes with bagged popcorn… but still SO MUCH FLAVOR!

all you need are three ingredients:
popcorn kernels (about a cup)
olive oil (a few tablespoons)
sea salt (to taste)

get a deep pot and dump all the kernels in. then pour in just enough oil so that the kernels are all sitting in it. season with the sea salt.

turn on the heat to medium and begin to shake the pot in order to distribute the heat.
eventually, the oil will begin to sizzle, and you’ll see the kernels getting darker in color.
keep yourย pot cover at the ready!!!
when the very first kernel pops, slap that cover on and SHAKE!

when you don’t hear any more kernels popping, remove from the heat and pour into a BIG bowl! ๐Ÿ™‚

perfectly fluffy, no burned bits, and every kernel popped… could it be any more perfect?!

plus, it’s so simple that you could easily make this with your kiddos. ๐Ÿ™‚
how fun is it to watch those kernels popping together?!
try this recipe, and let me know how it goes!

happy popping! ๐Ÿ˜‰
