Course: Snack
Servings: 8 cups of popped popcorn
Author: Forrest Green Farm


  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil  or other high-heat oil
  • butter, melted optional
  • salt optional
  • FGF Seasoning see notes below


  • To make popcorn on the stove top, place 1-2 tablespoons of oil into the bottom of a heavy duty 6 QT saucepan, or a metal popcorn pan.
  • Add 2-3 kernels of popcorn and cover the pan with a lid.
  • Once you hear a kernel pop, pour about 1/2 cup of kernels into the pan (enough to just cover the bottom of the pan.)
  • Cover the pan and every 30 seconds, pick up the pan to shake up the popcorn kernels.
  • Once you hear the kernels stop popping, remove from heat and remove lid.
  • Salt the popcorn and pour melted butter on top of the popcorn and enjoy!


Mix in 1-2 tsp. of your favorite FGF Seasoning when you are melting down your butter. Then drizzle over your popped popcorn.
