2 tbsp oil*
1/2 cup popcorn
Makes 3 servings.
Place oil in large pot on maximum heat. Throw in a few test kernels and wait for them to pop. This will tell you your oil is hot enough. Put in the rest of the popcorn and cover with lid. Immediately begin to move the pot back and forth, making sure to keep contact with the stove’s element at all times. Always keep the kernels moving so they don’t burn.
*Because this is cooked on high, you are best to use an oil that can withstand the high heat without converting to a trans fat. Those oils are: Almond, Avocado, Grapeseed, Peanut, Safflower, Sesame and Sunflower.
