How to Make Popcorn on the Stove

While I was making popcorn on the stove top for my kiddos, one of my friends told me I should post that action...apparently this skill I am so used to doing isn't one that many people know how to do.

Popcorn is both healthy and, make some today to snack on or enjoy in front of a movie.

What you'll need:

Coconut oil
White popcorn kernels
Stainless steel deep soup pan with clear glass lid


  1. Put your pan on a burner at medium high heat. 
  2. Scoop out enough coconut oil to coat the bottom of your pan.
  3. Drop one kernel into the pot once all coconut oil is melted (there should be about a 1/4" of cocunut oil in the base of the pot). Put on the lid.
  4.  Wait for that one little kernel to pop.
  5. Once the kernel has popped, pour enough popcorn in to coat the bottom of your pan in a single layer. I use 1/2 cup.
  6. Shake the pot back and forth to coat all the kernels.
  7. Wait for it all to start popping. 
  8. Once the popping slows down or stops, pour the contents into a big bowl.
  9. Salt to taste.
  10. Enjoy!
Here's a quick video to show how it's done:

  1. Hi Pam! We love making homemade popcorn and just found an easier way to make it. Put 1/2 cup kernels in a regular lunch sized brown paper bag. Fold the top two times. Put it in the microwave for 3 minutes. It pops perfectly! Found it on Pinterest.
