Coconut Oil ~ Popcorn a-Poppin


M-m-m-m-m...popcorn popped with coconut oil!  The flavor is beyond yummy. 

Several of you told me that popcorn tastes sweet and oh, so good when cooked in coconut oil, so I brought home some popcorn and set to work after dinner last night.



I realize that taking the lid off the pan once the oil is hot is not the smartest trick in the world, but I couldn't resist.  And, I know I should never post a bad photo here because it reflects badly on my blog...but, I really, really wanted to see what was going on and show it to you.  Could I help it if I flinched when the kernels started flying at me?  See those spots that look like they are on my camera lens?  Nope..those little drops were soaring up towards my hand!  Eek! 

That little stunt will not be repeated, so don't even ask!  The louse picture will just have to do.  Now, if you will excuse me, HB (HoneyBunny) and I are going to pig out...uh, I mean enjoy our treat!

Have you ever tried using coconut oil for your popped corn?  Or, better question - when did you last pop the corn in a pan on the stove?

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog.
    Coconut oil is a favorite of mine too. And I use Tropical Traditions, also.

    From my childhood, I remember a little bakery that sold pop corn and the sales girl would pour warm coconut oil over the pop corn before handing you the bag. It was on the way home from swimming and there is nothing that brings on hunger pains than a day of swimming. Your post evoked a wonderful memory.

  2. I love stove top popcorn! I stopped eating the microwaved stuff maybe two years ago; stove top is crunchier and tastier, in my opinion. I put the oil and kernels in right off the bat, then clamp that lid on and wait. I've never tried taking the lid off mid-pop! I do like popcorn with coconut oil but am more likely to use canola because I'm lazy and it doesn't require another utensil to wash up. After it's done, I season with sea salt, nutritional yeast, and garlic powder. Yum!

    1. Jennifer - You are smart to not open the lid..that was a silly thing for me to do - but I had the camera in my hand and ready, so I just did it! LOL! Now I am getting hungry!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I finally made my first non-microwave popcorn. I did use EVOO, which is not good at high temps, so Coconut Oil will be used next time. So much yummier when you make it the old fashioned way.

    Thank you for stopping by! Following back on GFC.
