Dee’s Healthy Popcorn Recipe

 

Ingredients:

1/2-cup organic popcorn kernels
1-2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
dash of sea salt

 

Directions:

  1. Cover the bottom of a medium stockpot with coconut oil.  Place the pot on the stovetop (without the lid) over medium heat. 
  2. Add one popcorn kernel to the oil and allow it to “pop”.
  3. Once the kernel has popped, add the rest of the corn kernels, stir to coat them with the oil, and then place the lid on the pot.
  4. Within a minute or two, the corn will begin popping into popcorn. Shake the pot over the heat to prevent burning.  When the popping starts to taper off, take the pot off of the heat and turn the burner off.
  5. Quickly transfer the popcorn to a large bowl or paper grocery bag and season with a dash of sea salt.  If desired, add some omega-3’s by drizzling with flax seed oil.

Hi Dee,

Sounds great.  How about stirring in some ghee for a little butter flavor?  Or would it burn?

Thanks,

I would melt the ghee separately and add it after the popcorn is popped.

Can you cook this popcorn in an air popper?

I used to have an air popper about a million years ago, and from what I remember the purpose of an air popper is to pop the corn without oil.  I don't think air poppers are designed for oil use, so I would not recommend making this recipe with an air popper.

The recipe will work great in any popcorn popper that is designed for using oil.

Hi Dee,

We just returned from a trip to Texas.  We stayed at Linda Alger's house (her mom, Sherry, and I have been friends since the twins were 5 or 5). At any rate, Linda introduced me to your books, and one night she made the popcorn for us.  It was fantastic and I can't wait to make it myself.

Hi Sally,

This is Dee.  I first want to say that it's great to hear from you.  I've been out of town on vacation so I am just now getting the opportunity to respond to the posts on the message board that came in while I was away.  So, you have known Linda since she was 5!  That is amazing!  I have known her since she was 11, so it's not much difference in our association!

I am glad that you like the popcorn she made for you.  It really is the healthiest way to make popcorn and the best tasting too.

Best of Health,
Dee

Hi Dee,

I was wondering if there are any sweet but healthy recipes that can be added to pop-corn (those tasting similar to kettle or caramel corn)?

Thanks,
Joe

I've never tried it, because I don't like my popcorn sweet, but you can try using coconut sugar or whole raw cane sugar as a replacement for regular sugar in this recipe I found on the internet for homemade kettle corn.  Don't forget to use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil!
