SERVES: 2 ⎪ DIFFICULTY: EASY⎪ FUNK: CASUAL

Mise en Place


COOKS NOTE For more coconut flavor, use coconut oil labeled “unrefined” or “virgin”.

_________________________________

1. HEAT THE OIL

Melt 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Drop 3 kernels into the oil. When they pop, the oil is hot and ready. 

_________________________________

2. POP THE CORN

Add the popcorn kernels to the pot. Cover, remove from the heat and count to 30. This prevents the kernels from burning before popping. Place back on the heat. When the kernels start popping, shake the pot frequently. Open the lid slightly to allow some steam to escape while the corn pops. This ensures the popcorn stays light and crisp. When the popping slows down, remove from the heat.

_________________________________

3. SEASON THE POPCORN

Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl. Toss with remaining coconut oil and coconut rum seasoning.

4. SERVE

Drizzle another tablespoon of melted coconut oil and an extra sprinkle of the coconut rum seasoning on top. Eat immediately with your hands or chopsticks, ideally while watching a pirate movie (arrgh!).
