This stovetop popcorn is ready in less than 15 minutes and can easily be made in bulk and stored for later. This page has all of the answers for how to make popcorn.
Making stovetop popcorn is surprisingly easy, and it’s done in less than 15 minutes. How to make popcorn? To start, you’ll need to heat a few tablespoons of vegetable or coconut oil in a tall pot. Add a few kernels to the oil; you’ll know the oil is hot enough to cook the rest of the popcorn once those few kernels pop. Add in the rest of the kernels and the salt.
Give the pot a little shake to evenly distribute the oil, and then wait for the magic to happen! It’ll likely take a few minutes for the kernels to begin popping, but once they do make sure to stay by the stove. If the lid on your pot doesn’t have ventilation holes, tilt the lid to allow the steam to escape. If you trap the steam in the pot, your stovetop popcorn will be soft and sad-tasting. Once the popping slows to a stop, remove the popcorn from the heat, add toppings of your choice, and dig in!
When making stovetop popcorn, it’s important to use an oil with a fairly high smoke point. For this recipe, we typically use canola or vegetable oil, since both have high smoke points. But for a more authentic movie theater flavor, you should use coconut oil. You only need 2 tablespoons of oil per half cup of kernels, so this popcorn won’t taste greasy!
- 1/2 cup yellow popcorn kernels
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/4 teaspoon popcorn salt (or crushed kosher salt)
- 3 quart saucepan
- Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and 3 popcorn kernels to the saucepan. Cover and heat the oil over medium-high heat.
- Add a few shakes (around 1/8 teaspoon) popcorn salt to 1/2 cup popcorn kernels. The oil is ready when the 3 kernels in the pan pop. At this time, add the rest of the kernels with the salt, and cover again. Shake the pan to spread the kernels in a single layer.
- Let the popcorn pop for a few minutes, shaking the pan frequently. If steam starts to build up, lift the lid a bit to release it. As soon as the popping slows down, take the saucepan off of the heat and wait for all popping to finish. Enjoy!
