How to make homemade popcorn on the stovetop, with 7 different popcorn seasonings. Easy, healthy and full of flavor.


Units Scale


In a heavy bottom pot, heat the oil on medium heat, add the popcorn (in a single layer) and cover.

Once popping begins, shake the pot occasionally, open the lid just slightly for steam to vent, and continue shaking until kernels, slow down their popping. Turn stove off, uncover and give a quick toss.

Season with olive oil and salt to taste.

Add any additional seasonings you like (see notes).
