I used to buy the microwave popcorn, but it’s not very good for you. So this is a much healthier option.
1/4 cup oil (I used Rice Bran oil)
1/2 cup corn kernels
Salt, to taste
Pour the oil into a large pot and heat to medium to high heat.
Put 4 corn kernels into the oil, and place the lid on.
When the kernels pop, add the 1/2 cup of kernels in an even layer. Cover, remove from the heat and count 30 seconds.
Return the pot to the heat. The popcorn should begin popping. Make sure to shake the pot every now and then so the uncooked kernels drop to the bottom.
Keep the lid ajar (this is the trick to crisp popcorn)
Once the popping slows, remove the pot from the heat and immediately tip into a large bowl.
Sprinkle over salt to taste.
