  • Real-Food Popcorn Recipes

    Once you’ve popped a bowl of fluffy popcorn, it’s time to season. Popcorn doesn’t need much – a little butter and salt goes a long way – but it’s fun to go gourmet with these recipes. First, make about eight cups of popcorn. Then while it’s popping, mix the topping ingredients together. Drizzle the topping on the popcorn, and use a long wooden spoon to toss or stir it throughout the popcorn. For extra flavor, cook popcorn with unrefined coconut oil.
