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.
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).
SELECT a large heavy-bottomed 3 quart pot with an accompanying lid and place over medium heat.
