Healthy Popcorn Recipes: 12 Simple Ways to Add Flavour

December 21, 2016 Honest to Goodness

Popcorn is a fantastic healthy snack when coated with the right ingredients! It is quick to prepare and has a tasty crunch that is popular amongst kids and adults. Our particular variety of organic popcorn kernels has a high hard-starch content that "explodes" through the hull when heated to give excellent popping results!

1/2 a cup of popcorn kernels creates about 10 cups once it is all popped - that is enough popcorn to fill one big bowl! Grab your friends and family (or just yourself...) and dive into these light and airy puffs anytime of the day.

Want to know how to create perfectly popped popcorn in just 5 minutes? Check out our instructions below:



  1. To pop, 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.
  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!
