Cooking Instructions

  1. Cover the base of a large pan with olive oil and a pinch of salt, heat gently.
  2. Drop a kernel into the pan, if it sizzles then add a full layer of corn to the pan.
  3. Place a glass lid on the pan and wait to watch the corn pop.
  4. Wait until the corn has popped and take off the heat
  5. Give it a moment to finish popping, transfer to a sharing bowl and tuck in!

Storage

For optimum freshness keep in a cool place away from moisture and direct sunlight.  Store in a tightly sealed bag or container.

Family Tip:

  1. Simply cover the bottom of a large pan with olive or coconut oil and warm it gently.  Add the salt now if you are using any.  Cover the bottom with one layer of corn kernels and put the lid on.  Keep the pan on a mid-heat until the popping has slowed down significantly.  You can leave it off the heat for a few moments while the last few kernels pop.  Garnish with your favourite toppings.
  2. Both our boys (1 and 3 years) love fresh popcorn warm from the pan and they have great fun helping in the process.  Get the children involved!
  3. Our favourite toppings are apple cider vinegar with sea salt, maple syrup or cajun spice.
