For years, I had always popped popcorn kernels with oil.
I read about air-popping corn kernels over the stove yet didn’t think it was actually possible as I tried once and failed. All that had resulted was burnt kernels.
Something recently inspired me to give this oil-free popping a try once again because after reading another article I realized where I went wrong.
I didn’t shake the pot of kernels every one to two minutes like I should have.
So I gathered my stick-free (non-stick) pot, heated it on medium to high flame, then poured in some corn kernels and covered the pot with the top.
I frequently shook the kernels around and before I knew it they started to pop!
Ever since, I’ve been air-popping popcorn like a professional.
It is so much healthier to pop our own popcorn. To pop it without the use of oils and without adding salt which make the grain the ultimate healthy snack that it actually is.
Purely natural popcorn is packed with nutritional value (including fiber) and it tastes good too!
Corn is just all around delicious period!
