Homemade Popcorn is the BEST!

  • There are lots of benefits to homemade popcorn...
  • There are no trans-fats
  • There are no hydrogenated oils
  • It's dairy/soy free!
  • It's cheaper than store-bought
  • It's tastier than store-bought
  • It's just plain FUN to make!!


Here's the instructions we use (You can find it on the back of the bottle of popcorn):

instructions3Tbsp of Canola Oil
1/2 Cup Popping Corn
Large Stockpot
Popcorn Salt


1.Use a large stock-pot with lid (we like the non-stick because it's easier to clean afterwards)
2. Measure 3 Tablespoons of canola oil into the saucepan.
Add 3 kernels of popcorn, cover with lid and heat on medium.
Wait until one of the kernels pop.
Now the oil is hot enough to pop your corn!


3. When first kernel pops, lift lid and add 1/2 cup of popcorn, cover with lid and gently shake pan until popping stops.

4. Pour popped corn into a large bowl and season to taste. (we add popcorn salt and a little sugar so that it tastes like kettle corn)

Thanks for the blog! I've been needing this, after nearly a year of being dairy-free for my little one! It's always great to have more resources.

Hi! I just came across your blog while searching online for dairy free recipes. I'm at the beginning stages of diagnosis and eating dairy free (also soy, egg and peanut free for the time being) for my 5 month old. Praying that it relieves some ongoing symptoms. We're living in Thailand doing missions work and many dairy free foods are not available here, so I'm thankful for every resource to glean ideas so I don't have to eat just carrots for lunch every day!:) Thanks so much!
