How to make popcorn in a pot?

Oct 21, 2022 Michał Pelc

Popcorn is my favorite snack for a movie or favorite series. I used to buy microwave popcorn because it seemed convenient to use, as opposed to the grain to be prepared in a pot. I don't know why it seemed difficult to me. Back then, I wasn't paying attention to the ingredients for the snacks I was buying. Now I know that microwave popcorn can contain up to 15% palm oil. This is an ingredient that I avoid in my diet. Fortunately, I already know how to make popcorn in a pot. Now I make it with this method, even faster than in the microwave.

Popcorn is a healthy snack. However, remember that corn and soybeans are one of the two most genetically modified grains in the world. To make popcorn a healthy and safe snack, choose BIO Popcorn Grain . Certified organic products cannot be GMOs.

How to make popcorn like in the cinema?

All you need to make popcorn is a large pot with a lid, some fat and a grain of corn. You'll make popcorn like in the movies. I just suggest not to salt it that much. For me, popcorn in cinemas is often oversalted.

How to make popcorn so that it does not burn

These three fats are best for roasting popcorn: coconut oil, clarified butter, and olive oil. I use them interchangeably, depending on what popcorn I want. I tried to make popcorn with rapeseed oil in the past, but I didn't like it.

You can use unrefined coconut oil, then you will hold the coconut popcorn delicately.

Clarified butter popcorn is the way to make real buttery popcorn, without the artificial buttery flavor. However, do not use ordinary butter for this, it burns very easily. Only clarified butter (ghee) is suitable for popcorn.

It used to be strange to me, but recently I like popcorn prepared in olive oil the most.

How Much Popcorn Oil?

Pour just enough oil to cover the entire bottom of the pan. You can add a little more oil the first time. Such a layer 1-2mm thick all over the bottom will be perfect. Heat the oil to about 160 degrees, you must feel hot. This is the perfect temperature to roast popcorn.

Pour in the corn kernels to cover the entire bottom of the pot thoroughly. This is the optimal amount. Cover the pot with a lid and wait for the grains to pop. Then it is worth reducing the fire, using ¾ of the burner power. Thanks to this, you will not burn the popcorn. When the pot is at least half full of popcorn. Gently open the lid, it will make the popcorn more crunchy.

Cheese popcorn

If you like cheese popcorn, be sure to try the vegan version with yeast flakes. You can find the recipe here .

Now you know everything about popcorn. Remember that popcorn tastes best straight away. On the second day it is not so tasty anymore. Therefore, it makes no sense to prepare it in advance.
