Homemade Popcorn You Can't Put Down
Popcorn. You've had it. It's associated with movie theaters. Maybe you have a popcorn maker called a microwave. Here's how to make some real popcorn to make your Netflix and Chill time even more enjoyable with nothing but a pot and a stove.

The secret sauce, if you will, is the coconut oil and the flavacol that makes this taste so good.
To do this all you need is a standard pot with a lid and a stove. No microwave needed. First, put about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a pot with only 2 to 3 kernels and put it on medium heat on the stove. Make sure and put the lid on the pot to prevent splashing oil everywhere. While that's heating up, measure out 1/4 cup of kernels and 1/8 teaspoon of flavacol. Once 2 of those kernels has popped, dump in the rest of the kernels and flavacol and set it off to the side for about 30 seconds making sure all of the kernels get wet in the oil. Then, put it back on the medium heat and cover again. The kernels will start to pop. Once you hit about a 3 second delay without a pop, immediately remove it off of the stove and dump it into another container. It's important to be quick here. If you don't get it out of the pot as soon as the popcorn is done, it will start to burn.
Now, lightly season with melted butter and sea salt. Don't overdo it with the salt (keeping in mind you've already used flavacol which is mostly salt).
