OK, I tried a lot of different combinations of oils, popcorn and pre-made popcorn packs before we settled on one that we really liked.
So here's my recipe for popcorn:
CJ's Favorite Popcorn
1 1/2 T Coconut oil
1 1/4 cup popcorn
1/2 - 3/4 tablespoon Flavacol
That's all there is to it. Here are the ingredients that we find work best:Coconut Oil
Available from Amazon for about $21 for a three pack using Subscribe and Save
. Here's a link
Available at WalMart for around $4.50. Available at other outlets as well.Flavacol
Available on Amazon for about $11 for a two pack. Here's a link
. We purchased a two pack 3 years ago and have 1/4 of the second package left.
Here's a photo of the Great Northern per-packaged popcorn that I purchased. We hated it. The oil tasted oily, the popcorn was small, and it didn't taste as good as the stuff we made. I've tried it a few times and we still feel the same way. YMMV.
Good luck!Edited by carboranadum - 3/22/13 at 5:46am
