Prep Time2 mins

Total Time7 mins
Servings: 12 -16 cups
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil you can use a little less or a little more – it doesn’t have to be exact
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels Orville Redenbacher’s works the best!
- butter and salt to taste
Place the coconut oil in a large stockpot (mine is 12 quarts and works perfectly). Put about 5 kernels in the oil and heat over medium-high heat (with the lid on!) until the kernels start to pop.
At this point, add the rest of the kernels, replace the lid and wait until all of the kernels start popping. While the kernels are popping, I usually give the pan a good shake every 30-45 seconds until there is more than 3-4 seconds between pops. At this point, the popcorn is ready!
Remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. I think it’s wonderful with just a little salt, but if you are wanting extra yummy popcorn, melt 3-4 Tbsp butter and drizzle over the popcorn before adding the salt – sooooo good!
