Quick and Easy Stove-Top Popcorn

Popcorn is a natural whole-grain snack food, but is often times used as a mobile source for salt, sugars, food coloring, etc. Getting back to the natural goodness of this grain is essential.

Inspired by our campfire popcorn popper (and recipe), I created THIS quick and simple recipe using a stainless steel pot and a gas range.

You will need:
2/3 cup popcorn kernels
2-3 TBSP oil of choice (I recommend canola or coconut)
Dash of Sea Salt

1. Preheat empty pot for 3-5 minutes on medium heat setting.
2. Remove from heat and add oil and kernels.
3. Place lid on top of pot and heat on medium heat. Vigorously shake the pot (using hotpads) every 30-45 seconds. When you begin to hear kernels popping, hold the pot ~3-6 inches above the flames and shake continuously until popping stops.
4. Remove from heat.
5. Remove the lid and add salt as desired.
6. Serve.
