Old School Popcorn Recipe

Use a large, thin pot with a lid that allows for expansion. Choose a pot with a large surface area, but not one that is too deep.

Add 3 tablespoons of Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil – butter flavored of course, to the pan.

To test the temperature add 3 kernels of corn and allow to pop. Once they pop you know the oil has reached the proper temperature.

Remove popped kernels with a pair of tongs and set aside.

Add 1/3 cup of popcorn to the pan, return to heat, cover with lid and shake, shake, shake as the kernels begin to pop.

Empty the popcorn into a big bowl.

Melt 2 tablespoons more of the butter-flavored coconut oil in the hot pan off of heat and lightly coat the popcorn. This will allow the seasonings to adhere.

Shake salt, Rasberrys Jalapeno Ranch, Rasberrys Everything Bagel or whatever your favorite seasonings are. Enjoy!
