TIMESTAMPS (coming shortly!)

¾ cup popcorn kernels
1 tbsp avocado oil
1 tsp sea salt

Heat the oil in an 8-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add two or three popcorn kernels into the oil and pop the lid on.

Once the kernels pop, add the rest of the kernels to the pot. Cover the pot, remove it from the heat and wait for 30 seconds before placing the pot back over the burner (this will help to ensure that all your kernels pop at the same time!). Once you hear the popcorn begin to pop, begin to gently shake the pot back and forth over the burner. I usually pick the whole pot up and give it a few intermittent shakes throughout the popping process.

Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pot from the heat and pour your popcorn into your serving bowl. Season with sea salt and/or any other favorite seasoning. Enjoy!!

You can store leftover popcorn in an airtight container for up to 4 days. If you know you won’t be using all the popcorn, season only what you’ll be using so you can store the rest plain.

  1. This is the method I grew up with so glad you are sharing it- at times for small batches we also used a cast iron skillet used with a metal lid. Thank you for taking the time to explain some of the “nuances” – when I left home I had a dedicated pot for popcorn as I didn’t always pay enough attention to the temp. so it would sizzle a bit and affect the surface. Nowadays I use an air popper and drizzle with a tad of jalapeño infused olive oil and sprinkle of salt. Thanks for your wonderful and well described recipes.

  2. I love popcorn. Thanks to my grandmother I was eating popcorn early in life. My grandmother was part Native American and she made sure we were eating popcorn and blueberries.

  3. This is a throwback!!! This was the first recipe I saw on your channel, Dani. It's wonderful to see the redux, and I can vouch that the popcorn is still delicious to this day 🤤. Plain salt is still the best topping!!!

  4. The only reason you need oil, is so the seasoning will stick. If you don't want salt or other seasoning, skip the oil. I eat mine plain Jane.

  5. Back when I used to drink, I remember getting drunk one night, making popcorn on the stove, and falling asleep on accident. I think the fire alarm woke me up, but it wasn't right away.

    When I woke, all due to the burnt popcorn on the stove, you would have thought the whole house was on fire. I had to get to the basement, just to think about what to do. I had to duck down when upstairs due to so much smoke. And when I opened the windows, it was huge streams of smoke pouring out. This was due to a little pan of popcorn on the stove.

    I took the pan outside, let it burn out, and that was the end of the problem. It looked like burning coals in a grill.

    I only say it as a public service announcement, to be careful with burning popcorn. It generates so much smoke, you may be shocked.

  6. When I was little, many years ago, we would pop a big pot of corn, fold over the top edge of a large paper bag and fill it full. Throw all the couch cushions on the floor and watch a movie. Usually western or the occasional Godzilla! It tastes so much better this way

  7. First time I popped on the stovetop…I put too much for such a small pot and so much came up that the lid got pushed off. Popcorn everywhereeee. Lesson learnt, use a huge pot! 😂😂😂

  9. My mom always prepared our popcorn this way and we loved it! The only difference was that once the popping started she kept shaking the pot until the popping was completely done to keep the kernels from burning.

  10. Thanks for this Dani! I absolutely ❤️ popcorn 🍿 love it! And I’ve cooked it on the stove- however- I’ve never done it low and slow, nor have I ever tried with avocado oil 🤯 I’m going to try your way next time. Thanks!

  11. Hey, Dani! I’ve made popcorn on the stove as well until I discovered the silicone popcorn maker for the microwave. This also uses regular popcorn kernels, but no oil. I will say that I have had differing success with this tool in different microwave ovens, but have figured out the right combination with my current microwave. Whatever method, stovetop or silicone popper, I think it’s better than prepackaged microwave popcorn and much more economical!
