Why I don’t make two batches, I don’t know; because my kids always want more. I’m left to finger lick the salt and popcorn skins from the bottom of the pot. Unless you have a giant pot it is best to make one batch at a time or you risk burning the popcorn.
I like to drizzle flax oil on top after it’s finished. Combined with the coconut oil (or you can use the highest burning point oil, avocado oil) and salt, the taste is amazing. Flax oil gives it that buttery look, yet is healthier and dairy free. Anti-inflammatory flax seed oil is high in omega 3s, is useful as a laxative 😁, helps in weight loss, great for skin & hair and is cancer preventative.
It’s a great after school snack or even great to send to school. Just be sure to let it cool before packaging it up. Popcorn party with Aunt Ginny after school. Not much time to talk when you have popcorn to hoover.
I bought this purple popcorn but don’t hold your breath. It’s the popcorn in the photo. Maybe a slight purple tinge to the kernel pieces that are visible but, otherwise, white. Fun and yummy, nonetheless.
makes a lot, serves 3-5
• heat on med-high heat, 2 tbsp coconut or avocado oil in large pot on stove top
• add 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
• shake the pot to spread out kernels in one layer
• place lid on pot and wait till you hear the first pop
• with oven mitts (to prevent steam burn) shake the pot continuously until popping ceases (until approx 6 seconds between pops)
• remove lid
• drizzle 2 tbsp flax oil (or more) on top and 1/2 – 1 tsp salt
Serve & enjoy
