What kind of oil is best for stovetop popcorn?
While you can use just can use any oil with a high smoke point for making popcorn on the stove, I prefer coconut oil because of the health benefits.
What are the health benefits of coconut oil?
Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal properties. It may promoted healthy weight loss. It’s also a great source of antioxidants.
What are the health benefits of seas salt?
Sea salt helps keep you hydrated, is great for your skin, prevents muscle cramps, improves digestion, balances electrolytes, and helps balance blood pressure.
Why is sea salt better for you than table salt?
Sea salt retains more nutrients than table salt. It has minerals like magnesium, potassium, and calcium. These minerals add flavor and color.
- 3 quart pot with lid
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil, refined
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- sea salt
- Add coconut oil to pot, turn on medium and allow to melt. Add two kernels of popcorn to the pot.
- Once both pop, add the rest of the popcorn to pot with some sea salt and cover. (I didn't measure, just what I thought looked good. You can always add more afterward.)
- Once the popping slows down (2-3 pop per second), remove from heat. Enjoy
