Yummy Popcorn in a pot!

We stopped eating popcorn a long time ago because I didn't have an air popper and I refuse to use the microwave kind. I got brave last year and started popping popcorn in a pot. It is a lot easier than I thought Here is our recipe:

Will make 5 servings

1 big stock pot
1 cup of popping corn
1/2- 1 stick of butter
2-4 TBS of olive oil
1 TBS of coconut oil

pour olive oil in pot then add corn kernels shake pot side to side often then turn to medium heat and cover. Wait watch and sing ...

Popcorn, popcorn,
in the pot.
Popcorn popcorn

once you and the kids sing it enough it will start popping...

When the popcorn popping has slowed then take off heat and drizzle over your melted butter, melted coconut oil, then salt to taste. The coconut oil adds a hint of sweetness plus adds good fats.

This is my favorite recipe and the kids LOVE it as well.

For more info on benefits of coconut oil this is a GREAT read.
