{Old Fashioned} Popcorn

Like most of the American population, we love to eat popcorn when watching movies.

While air popped corn is great, sometimes it's fun to make old fashioned stovetop popcorn.

The boys love to help and they get so excited when the kernels finally start popping.

I used to make it with canola oil, but since I've switched to unrefined oils, I've started using good old fashioned bacon grease.

It gives the popcorn a great flavor so no need to add additional butter, just toss with salt and some fresh grated parmesan and enjoy!

Old Fashioned Popcorn

2 spoonfuls of bacon grease
1/4 cup organic non GM corn
Sea salt
Parmesan, grated (optional)

Put bacon grease and popcorn in saucepan and cover. Heat over medium heat, gently moving pan across the burner for 4-5 minutes or until popcorn pops.

Continue moving pan back and forth so the corn does not burn. Once kernels have slowed popping, turn off heat and let sit to pop remaining kernels. Sprinkle with salt and parmesan cheese.
