  • 1 cup yellow popcorn kernels (or just enough to cover bottom of pot)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • In a large 4-5 quart pot over medium high heat, melt the coconut oil. Add one kernel of popcorn and cover pot until you hear the kernel pop.
  • Remove the lid and add the remaining popcorn kernels, sugar and salt. Stir to coat and then quickly flatten kernels on the bottom of the pot, just so they cover the bottom.
  • Cover the pot and shake gently. You will hear the kernels begin to pop.
  • Continue shaking over the heat for another 2-3 minutes or until the popping begins to slow down.
  • Remove from the heat and leave the lid on for just a few seconds until you hear the popping stop. Makes 8-10 cups of popped popcorn. Store in an air tight container.
