What can be better than a crunchy snack and lots of it….not to overlook the low calories and high fibre. I stopped buying microwave popcorn because of its historic use of trans and/or saturated fats. I pop from scratch.
But imagine my surprise when I gave a gift of gourmet kernels only to learn the recipients didn’t have a clue how to make stovetop popcorn. I won’t take time to detail the age-old method, check out YouTube instead. Just remember to start with a healthy oil like canola, and you don’t need a lot of it – one tablespoon or less per 2 quart pot is adequate. Toss in 5 kernels and wait (lid on) until they have popped to know the oil is hot enough to add your portion (about one third cup). Kernels should be in a single layer and keep shaking!!
