Recipe by The Spice Guru

My recipe for a movie-theater-good popcorn snack. An alternate version of this may be prepared, using 1/3-1/2 cup coconut oil before popping, then seasoning with fine sea salt or popcorn salt only, after popping.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup popcorn oil (Orville Redenbacher's Buttery Flavor)
  • 12 cup popcorn (Orville Redenbacher's Original Gourmet)
  • popcorn, topping to taste (Orville Redenbacher's Buttery Flavor)
  • popcorn salt, to taste

Directions

  1. FOR A NON-GREASY "POPPED-IN" BUTTER FLAVOR -- INCREASE POPPING OIL TO 1/3-1/2 CUP, THEN SKIP ADDING THE TOPPING OIL. FOR AN ALTERNATIVE VERSION, USE PURE EXPELLER-PRESSED COCONUT OIL AS THE ONLY OIL (ADD 1/3-1/2 CUP COCONUT OIL BEFORE POPPING, THEN SEASON WITH SALT).
  2. SELECT a large heavy-bottomed 3 quart pot with an accompanying lid and place over medium heat.
  3. ADD 1/4 cup Orville Redenbacher's Buttery Flavor Popping & Topping oil.
  4. DROP a 3 or 4 popcorn kernals into pot and cover; WAIT until at least one kernal pops.
  5. UNCOVER and add 1/2 cup popcorn.
  6. COVER again then swirl pot gently to saturate kernals.
  7. AFTER kernals begin to pop, shake pan every few seconds until popping slows down.
  8. TURN off heat when popping slows down.
  9. REMOVE from heat, remove lid and season popcorn immediately with salt.
  10. SERVE and enjoy.
