“This popcorn Tastes just like the movie theater popcorn”
That is what I hear from everyone who tastes the popcorn that I make by following the recipe in this post. I learned the secret to great popcorn in high school in the 80s. I cooked all of the popcorn for the concession stands at home football games at my high school. Some of these games hosted more than 10,000 hungry fans. I did use professional equipment and bulk supplies, but I never forgot the secrets to making good popcorn. Those secrets are shared here.
The single most important ingredient in making great popcorn is the oil. You don’t need a fancy pot with a whirly crank. It’s not about shaking the pot or when you add the salt. It’s all about the oil. Most people use vegetable or canola oil and try all kinds of tricks to get that movie theater taste. They would save themselves some trouble if they would track down some coconut oil. Here is how I make it happen.

*Note: It is important to stay with the pan during the entire cooking process. Some stoves heat up faster than others and you don’t want to burn your oil.
Check out the YouTube video below to see how I make this mouth watering treat for my family.
Now that the secret is out, you should consider the use of coconut oil in your kitchen. This ingredient has been difficult to find in our area, but oddly enough Walmart was the only store carrying coconut oil consistently.
