My absolute guilty pleasure is popcorn, not the buttery salty popcorn that you experience at the movies but the freshly made kettle corn with a dash of salt and slightly caramelized sugar.
Here are a few facts about pop corn
1. They are high in Fiber
2 Contains 100% whole grain
3. Contains antioxidants
4. A cup of plain popcorn contains about 30 calories ( add a few more calories for the if you add butter or my favorite (salt and sugar combo)
5. Absolutely delicious
I tend to make popcorn with coconut oil. This adds a unique flavor coupled with the benefits of coconut oil due to its high level of natural saturated fats that increased healthy cholesterol (HDL) and converts "bad" cholesterol into good ones, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease.
Check out this quick recipe to make a batch of this delicious snack.
Prep time: 5 mins Cook time: 5 mins Ready in: 10 mins
1. 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2. 1/2 cup of un-popped popcorn
3. Sea salt to taste
4. 1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
5. 1/4 Cup of regular white sugar
** note that you may use just one type of sugar; therefore use 1/2 cup of sugar of choice.
Combine all ingredients in the Wabash Valley Farms popcorn popper, place on medium heat and turn the handle as popcorn pops. When the popping slows down to a few seconds in between pops for 3 to 5 minutes, remove pot from stove and pour in a large bowl.
Allow popcorn to cool to get the most crispiness.
