GFCFSF Popcorn

It may not seem like rocket science, but there was a time at the beginning of this diet that I had to ask how to make popcorn on the stove! The microwave popcorn usually has casein, or at least other nasty things. Making it on the stove is SO easy and very cheap. If you are not corn-free (many kids are), this is a great, popular snack! Popcorn made like this is gluten-free, casein-free, and soy-free.

1-2 Tbsp. oil (I like coconut oil)
1/3 cup popcorn kernels (I like organic)
salt (optional)
cinnamon (optional)
brown sugar (optional)

Heat oil on high in a pot. Put 3 kernels in the pot. Once the kernels pop, pour in the rest of the kernels and quickly cover fully with pot lid. Right away, hold the pot handle with one hand and the lid handle with the other and start shaking vigorously back and forth over the burner. You will hear the kernels inside popping. Once the popping slows down, immediately remove from the heat and pour into a bowl or paper bag. Add your toppings (I like salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar) and mix.
