Old Fashioned Pop Corn

Old Fashioned Pop Corn

Have you ever made popcorn on the stove? It’s so much better than the microwave kind, or even air pop for that matter. The kernels pop up light, fluffy and crisp.

It’s so easy to make and you can keep it healthy by simply adding a touch of salt, or a sprinkle of flavors, or you can make it as a very special treat by drizzling melted butter over the top.

Anyway you dress it up, it will be delectable.

Popcorn Kernels (do check the date for freshness, it does go stale)

Coconut Oil or any oil you prefer. I chose coconut oil for it’s health benefits and fabulous taste.

    This brings back so many memories. We cooked a lot of popcorn on the stove. I love your seasonings. We were to dumb back them to season it or maybe seasoning was not invented. Anyway, I am going to have to show my kids how to make popcorn on the stove. Maybe Today!

    I will have to try this – reminds me of growing up my parents used to make it this way or my grandmother. We have an air popper that we use a lot. I like the idea of using the coconut oil.

  • My kids always make their own popcorn on the stove…no microwave here. They love it that way…tastes so much better!

    When I was little I remember popping popcorn on the stove (I think it was the Jiffy Pop kind). My kiddo has too many sensory issues to try something like that with now. Thanks for sharing this on #yuckstopshere link up. Please come share some more with us next week.
