Paper Plate Gourmet : Dizee-Pop (Popcorn Made with Coconut Oil)

Organic Popcorn made with coconut oil

 

Ah…. Popcorn.  A snack staple from my weight watcher days.

 

Back then, I used the microwavable stuff – you know the one with the yellow kernels and the warning to not inhale the fumes.

 

Well, knowing my intense love of all things coconut oil and my current weight loss resolution , it was only a matter of time before this happened.

 

You see where this is headed, right?

 

I made my own popcorn with coconut oil on my stove.  Just call it Dizee Pop.

 

 

Ingredients

 

3TBS of Coconut Oil

1/3 cup of Organic Pop Corn Kernels (thus avoiding the dreaded GMO kernels)

Sea Salt, to taste

Seriously, just those 3 ingredients

 

Directions

  1. Put a nice size pot on the stove, add the 3 TBS of coconut oil & wait for it to melt
  2. Rub any extra coconut oil from the spoon into your elbows or hands.  Don’t waste it!
  3. When you think the oil is warm enough, add 2-3 kernels to the pot and wait until they pop.  (Mine popped clear out of the pot and onto the floor.  It made one of the pups very happy)
  4. Add the rest of the kernels and put the lid on the pot
  5. Get ready for a party in that pot.  Shake the pot every thirty to forty seconds or so to prevent burning
  6. When the popping calms down, dump the popcorn out onto a paper towel lined baking sheet.
  7. Sprinkle with Sea Salt

 

The whole thing took only minutes.  Even Craig enjoyed it.  To quote

I don’t taste the coconut oil.  This isn’t half bad.

 

Now, obviously, this opens the door to all sorts of crazy combinations – garlic, cheese or possibly chili powder.

 

Does anyone pop their own popcorn?  What is your favorite topping?
