Homemade Oil-Popped Popcorn
Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 8 cups
  • 1 tablespoon canola or peanut oil (do not use olive oil - it has a low smoke point)
  • ⅓ cup popcorn kernels
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot on medium-high heat.
  2. Put 3 or 4 kernels into the oil.
  3. When those kernels pop, add the rest of the ⅓ cup of popcorn kernels in an even layer. Cover the pot, remove from heat and count 30 seconds while swirling the pot.
  4. Return the pan to the heat and keep the lid slightly ajar. Once the popping starts, gently swirl the pan back and forth over the burner again.
  5. Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat, remove the lid, and dump the popcorn into the serving bowl.
Air-popped popcorn will have even fewer calories and fat.
