Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola or coconut oil
  • ½ cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter and maple syrup together over medium heat until the butter is completely melted. Allow the mixture to bubble for about a minute before removing it from the heat.
  • Place oil and 2-3 popcorn kernels in a 3-quart stainless steel saucepan. Heat over medium heat, listening for the kernels to pop.
  • Once the 2-3 kernels have popped, remove them from the pan and add your ½ cup of popcorn kernels to the hot oil.   
  • Return the popcorn to the heat and allow the popcorn to pop. You want to shake the pan back and forth over the heat so that the popcorn on the bottom doesn't burn. Be sure to shake at least every 30 seconds.
    Once the popping has slowed down, remove the popcorn from the heat. Transfer the popcorn to a large serving or mixing bowl. 
  • Drizzle the butter and maple syrup mixture over the popcorn. Toss or gently mix the popcorn to coat all of the pieces. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste and enjoy!
