Popping ruby red kernels at home

Bringing home a bag of popcorn kernels has a bit of an old-timey feel to it, doesn’t it? If this seems daunting, don’t stress! You’re about to make an amazing snack, from scratch! Here’s how we do it in our house.

  1. Add 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to a medium to large pot with a lid.
  2. Add 1/3 cup of ruby red kernels to the pot.
  3. Turn stove on to medium-high heat, and put the lid on your pot.
  4. Swirl the oil and kernels in the pot occasionally so they heat evenly.
  5. When popping starts continue to swirl or shake gently back and forth so the poppped popcorn doesn’t burn.
  6. When popping slows or stops, turn off the heat, and give a couple last shakes in case any stragglers still pop.
  7. Transfer to a bowl and top with melted butter, or whatever your favourite popcorn toppings are!
