Delicious Homemade Popcorn

This recipe makes a LOT of popcorn, so if you don't need a lot you may want to half the recipe.

We usually eat some and then put the rest in a container for lunches, play dates etc. Who would have thought that popcorn is so much harder to make than you think. Here is how the hubby mastered it:


1 cup popcorn

2-3 tablespoons olive oil (of course we use Santa Marta olive oil)

1 teaspoon Murray River pink salt (or a salt of your choice)

x2 tablespoons of unsalted butter

Pepper (optional)


  1. Put the olive oil, butter and salt in a pot and allow to slightly melt.
  2. Add popcorn and stir the mixture into it. Try to ensure there is only one layer of popcorn seeds.
  3. Put the lid on the pot, cook on high and turn off once popping slows right down. Do not take the lid off until popping has slowed right down.
  4. Enjoy!
