Healthy Popcorn Recipes: 12 Simple Ways to Add Flavour

When it comes to making great popcorn, the secret is in the kernels. Our  organic popcorn kernels are top-notch! Grown here in Australia without the use of insecticides or pesticides and harvested, polished and packed without the use of preservatives or additives. They're packed with hard starch that makes them "POP!" when heated, resulting in more fluffy, fully popped kernels and less of those annoying unpopped ones. 

The best part? You only need half a cup of kernels to make about 10 cups of popcorn, enough to share with your friends and family or indulge in all by yourself. This light and airy snack is perfect for movie nights or whenever you need a tasty snack or pick-me-up. 

If you're wondering how to make the perfect batch of popcorn in just five minutes, look no further! Follow our simple instructions below.

Healthy Popcorn Recipes: 12 Simple Ways to Add Flavour

WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO MAKE YOUR OWN POPCORN:

1. To start, add the oil to a large saucepan or soup pot (make sure it has a lid or you could be in trouble!). Add 3 kernels corn, cover and place over medium-high heat. 
2. When the three kernels pop, add the remaining ½ cup kernels (this lets you know that the oil is hot enough)
3. Cover the pot and swirl to coat the kernels with oil. Shake the pan constantly to ensure all the corn pops and it doesn't burn. Remember to use oven gloves to protect your hands from any heat.
4. Continue cooking until the popping slows to less than one pop in 4 seconds. Remove from the heat and you are ready to add your flavours!
