Popcorn is one of the best things to ever happen to mankind – that is just a fact. It may actually be just an opinion, but it is a well-researched one. It has everything you can ever want in a snack food. It is tasty, versatile, and actually low in calories. You can make popcorn taste however you want by seasoning it; you can even cover it in caramel and turn it into candy (what else can you ask for). This recipe is going to show you how to make traditional plain popcorn – you can do what you want from there.

Health Benefits

Popcorn has a lot of health benefits that make it one of the best snacks out there. Its benefits primarily come from its fiber, antioxidant, polyphenolic compounds, B vitamin complex, manganese, and magnesium content. They work together to improve digestion and keep your bowel movements regular and firm. It also helps to lower cholesterol, control blood sugar, prevent cancer, prevent aging, and aid in weight loss. One of the reasons it does all this is because popcorn is actually a whole grain so it has all the benefits of whole grains.

How to make Popcorn

  • Heat the oil in a 2-3 qt pot or saucepan with a lid at a medium-high temperature.
  • Pour in popcorn kernels.
    • Sprinkle salt to lightly cover the layer of kernels.
    • Note: You can always add more salt later.
  • Add the butter to the pot and cover with the lid.
  • Cook the kernels until they begin to pop.
  • As soon as the kernels start popping shake the pan back and forth across the burner constantly until the popping slows down.
  • Remove the popcorn from the heat and pour into a serving bowl once the pops are approximately 2 seconds apart.
  • Taste and season with additional salt as necessary.

Trivia
