Homemade Popcorn is the BEST!

There are lots of benefits to homemade popcorn...
There are no trans-fats
There are no hydrogenated oils
It's dairy/soy free!
It's cheaper than store-bought
It's tastier than store-bought
It's just plain FUN to make!!

Here's the recipe we use:
1.Use a large stock-pot with lid (we like the non-stick because it's easier to clean afterwards)
2. Measure 2 Tablespoons of canola oil into the saucepan. Add 3 kernels of popcorn, cover with lid and heat on medium high.
3. When first kernel pops, lift lid and add 1/3 cup of popcorn, cover with lid and gently shake pan until popping stops.
4. Carefully pour popped corn into a large bowl and season to taste. (we add popcorn salt and a little sugar so that it tastes like kettle corn)

Watching the corn POP is pretty neat!


Eating this popcorn, he looks like a lil Bucky Tooth Beaver!

  1. Hey Jess! I'm going to have to try this. Benson is so adorable! We need to get the boys together. They are pretty close in age and I know they would play well together.
