How to make stovetop popcorn

When I was little and would stay with my grandparents on Friday nights, my Granny would always make us popcorn on the stovetop. I started thinking about all those Friday nights, and thought I would love for my son to have memories like that. Also I remembered that it tasted so much better than microwave popcorn. Today I’m going to show you how to make popcorn on the stovetop. It’s extremely easy:


Here’s what you’ll need:

3 Table Spoons of Cooking Oil

1/2 Cup of Popcorn Kernels

Sea Salt

First you’ll want to put the oil in a large pot and then pour the kernels in. IMG_9854

Make sure all the kernels have oil on them. Once that is accomplished, turn the burner to medium heat. Place the lid on the top of the pot but be sure not close it fully.IMG_9858

After a few minutes, you’ll hear it start popping. Once you don’t hear as much popping remove the pot from the burner.  IMG_9863

Add salt, melted butter (if you want) and enjoy! IMG_9868
