A Moment in M.O.M.'s Kitchen- Popcorn
Last night Jed, Bekah and I stayed up till the wee hours of the morning painting the home. It was an important time to accomplish as much as we could with all the little ones fast asleep. Bekah requested some popcorn and Jed started sharing how his friends thought our popcorn was the best. I am not sure what we do that is so different than others except the oil we use. We enjoy the many health properties of Coconut Oil, it is my main oil of use here in our home. Popcorn is a frequent snack and treat in our home. On special occasions my Joe will make his recipe of his caramel popcorn. I have posted that in the past here on the Blog. Enjoy!
Large stock pan
2 heaping Tbs of Coconut oil
Heat your oil, then add your popcorn. As it pops make sure you lift the lid to let the steam out from time to time. I have found this keeps it from becoming "rubbery". Shake periodically till popping slows down. I normally call it done once I can't count to three in between the pops. Then sprinkle with some sea salt and put in bowls for the family to enjoy. At times I have to make a few recipes to feed my hungry troops!
We get our Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions. If you would like to learn more you can visit their site at: http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/what_is_virgin_coconut_oil.htm
Have a wonderful weekend with your families friends! I will probably be finishing up painting here in the house and enjoying popcorn at story time with the children!
