Vegetarian + Gluten Free
About 3 tbsp of any cooking oil
½ cup of popcorn kernels
½ tsp of salt
2 tbsp of butter (add more if you love your popcorn extra buttery😉)
Heat about 2-3 tbsp of oil over medium heat, then add 2 or 3 kernels as your test kernels and place the lid on your Larder & Vine Dutch Oven.
When your test kernels pop, your oil is at the right temperature and you're ready to add your ½ cup of kernels with about ½ tsp of salt.
Keep your stove on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes and occasionally shake your Dutch Oven with the lid on so your popcorn doesn't burn. When you hear the popping start to slow down, remove from heat but leave your lid on for about 5 minutes so any kernels that haven't popped can pop!
After 5 minutes, remove the lid and pour your popcorn into a large bowl for serving. Melt 1-2 tbsp of butter and pour over your popcorn.
