Perfect Popcorn: Every single time

A few years back I gave up on microwaves all together. I just all of the sudden didn’t feel comfortable using it. Plus, it was taking up so much counter space in my old apartment I just really didn’t feel like it was worth it! I never looked back, but had to quickly learn a new method of one of my favourite snacks, popcorn. Here is THE best method to stovetop popcorn where EVERY SINGLE KERNEL POPS.

First, put 3 tablespoons of high cooking temperature oil (I use Avocado oil–it’s the best). SAMSUNG CSC Processed with VSCOcam with a8 presetNext, on med-high heat, put 3-4 kernels of popcorn in the oil and cover. Now we wait… until all four kernels in the pot pop (roughly 1-2 minutes).SAMSUNG CSC Processed with VSCOcam with a8 presetOnce those pop, you then pour in 1/3 cup popcorn kernels so they evenly cover the bottom of the pot. SAMSUNG CSC Processed with VSCOcam with a8 presetRemove from heat and count 30 seconds. I know this may seem funny but I actually do this every time and it works PERFECTLY. SAMSUNG CSC Processed with VSCOcam with a8 presetAfter the 30 seconds is up, put the pot back on heat. The reason you do this is to bring all the kernels up to their ‘just about to pop’ stage together. Now this part can get a bit crazy–you need to keep venting the lid off the pot to release the pressure of the kernels popping inside. SAMSUNG CSC Processed with VSCOcam with a8 presetOnce the popping starts to slow down (roughly 7 seconds between pops) you’re done! SAMSUNG CSC Processed with VSCOcam with a8 presetTop with melted butter and fresh cracked salt & pepper.
