Stovetop popcorn used to be all the rage and now we are bringing it back with this super simple homemade popcorn recipe! If a microwave is not available to you, you can still have delicious popcorn to snack on in under 10 minutes!
To start, line a large pot (that has a lid) with foil. Place the uncooked popcorn kernels in a medium bowl. Drizzle them with oil and sprinkle with salt, toss to combine. Add the coated kernels to your prepared pot.
¼ cup popcorn kernels, 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, ½ teaspoon salt
Place the pot on the stove over medium-low heat. Replace the lid (*see note). Shake the pot occasionally in order to get the unpopped kernels down to the bottom of the pot where the heat source is.
Listen closely, when there is 2 seconds between pops remove the pot from heat. Toss with butter if desired, and enjoy!
