  • 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!
