Homemade popcorn

Hello everyone 🙂

So I’m in school to learn nutritional science. The other day I learned that microwave popcorn contains up to 60% fat ! I was so shocked how high this number was so I decided that I would do more of the old fashion popcorn that you do at home with pop corn (dried corn).

Couple of years ago we got a popcorn machine for christmas and I think I can count on one hand how many times we have used it. So now I picked it up from the basement and gave it a good cleanse.

In my local grocery store I found organic pop corn. I had to try it.

Next up was the popping 🙂

This is so easy with the popper. I only added the pop corn in to the machine with the coconut oil and waited until I did not hear anymore popping sound. Than you add salt to taste. And it was ready !

My kids and I had such a lovely after school snack over a good film this afternoon 🙂

If you don’t have a popper you can always use a saucepan .

I dare you to try this the next time you fancy popcorn.

Recipe is for 3 people

Coconut oil, 1 Tbsp
Popcorn, 100 grams
Salt, to taste

I hope you like it as much as we did

Until next time
