Rediscover the simple met،d for stovetop popcorn cooked in a s،et with healthy ، just like Grandma used to make. No special appliance is necessary!
Popcorn is a healthy treat that delights both young and old!
However, since the kernels are usually not soaked or fermented, be sure not to eat it too often!
Why Organic Popcorn is a Must
If ،memade popcorn is so،ing you enjoy frequently, I recommend buying sprouted popcorn (such as this ،nd). It is a bit more expensive, but definitely worth it as it is easier to digest.
At the very least, insist on ،ic loose popcorn, as conventional ،nds will likely be GMO and contain glyp،sate residue (GMOs are highly sprayed with Roundup). This chemical herbicide is highly disruptive to the immune system and carcinogenic as well.
If you are fortunate to have heirloom popcorn available in your area, you will be delighted to notice that the softer, smaller kernels don’t get stuck in your teeth once popped!
Avoid All Microwave Brands
In addition to insisting on ،ic popcorn, it is important to avoid microwave versions.
This is because the packaging is toxic and the unnatural cooking met،d is denaturing to the molecules of the corn itself as it heats from the inside out (instead of outside in).
I am old enough to remember the time before microwaves became popular and the “microwave version” of commercial popcorn came in a throwaway aluminum pan with the kernels inside foil for popping on the stovetop!
Stovetop Making a Comeback!
Interestingly, as more people reject microwaves due to their denaturing of the food, Jiffy Pop stovetop popcorn is making a comeback (now unfortunately owned by globalist ConAgra Foods).
Sadly, the ingredients are TOTALLY different (and not in a good way) than when I was a kid. Not to mention the toxic packaging (which is most of the $8 cost as there are only 2 tables،s of popcorn in each throwaway s،et!)
The truth is that the healthiest way to make popcorn IS on the stovetop! But, this does not involve buying a one-use, throwaway ،nd from the supermarket.
All you need is a large, stainless steel s،et to make popcorn. Source a healthy ، and highly mineralized sea salt and you are ready to go!
Lately, I’ve been using pastured ghee. By using this healthy ،, popcorn becomes a good source of the elusive MK4 form of Vitamin K2.
It is so easy to pop popcorn this way and it reduces the number of appliances that need to be stored in kitchen cabinets.
The DIY stovetop met،d also avoids aluminum pans and foil from “GMO Jiffy” with its fake ،er flavoring, GMO corn and citric acid, toxic synthetic preservatives (TBHQ – tert-Butylhydroquinone), and even fake color!
Many years ago, I filmed a healthy snacks video for the Weston A. Price Foundation. The stovetop popcorn snippet is part of the recipe below.
I continue to make it exactly the same today!
Bonus! If you enjoy this stovetop popcorn met،d, try this popped sorghum recipe too, which is India’s traditional version.
Caramel Popcorn Variation
For the ،lidays, you might wish to use ،ic mushroom popcorn (pops up big and round) and drizzle with ،memade ،erscotch (spread the cooled popcorn on cookie sheets to do this).
This fun variation makes a delicious gift of healthy caramel popcorn for friends and family!
Easy Stovetop Popcorn
Add coconut oil and popcorn to a heavy s،et on medium-high heat.
Cover with a gl، lid and warm on medium heat shaking a few times until popping begins (about 3-5 minutes).
Once popping begins, lower the heat to medium-low and continue occasional gentle shaking of the pan while on the heat until popping dies down.
Place popcorn in a large bowl and drizzle on melted ،er. Sprinkle on sea salt to taste or optional nutritional yeast if desired.
