What’s Cooking Wednesday: Stovetop Popcorn

This week, I don’t have a main dish or side dish, but I do have a fun, easy recipe for you. We came up with this over the weekend and tried it last night with Lucy. She always gets a kick out of Jiffy Pop when my in-laws make it for her, so we thought we’d try to make our on popcorn on the stove. It worked wonderfully and was SO good! And, a bag of popcorn will last you a while, making this very economical.

Put a thin layer of canola oil in a sauce pan, add the popcorn kernels and turned the stove to medium high heat.

Cover the pot with a lid but leave a little bit open on one side. Then, wait for it to start popping! Once it starts to pop, cover it completely, and once it starts to pop a lot, start shaking the pot.

And then you get yummy popcorn! It’s way better than microwave popcorn.

Lucy gave it two thumbs up!
