I’ve researched Movie Theater Popcorn, the real stuff, and it’s very easy and simple to make. The problem is that the ingredients aren’t readily available at just any grocery store but there’s a way you can do it your self and still have it turn out the same if you have some of these ingredients below.
There’s virtually only 5 things you need to know. What kind of Oil, Seasoning and Type of Corn to use and of course what Temperature and technique. I say technique because it is possible to do this in a standard frying pan and still have it turn out great.
I use a 12″ deep dish pan with a lid and I cook dialed in to about a 7, on a scale of 1-10, on the stove top. I use Butter flavored Coconut Oil, Flavacol popcorn salt(also butter flavored) and white, not yellow, popcorn kernels. There are knock off oils and seasonings in grocery stores but the’re not at all the same. So I ended up juggling a few sites between their outrageous shipping fees to order the salt and I have since found that making your own butter flavored coconut oil is virtually the same. Besides, who needs a 5 gallon bucket of popping oil stored away in their cupboard.
Movie Theater Popcorn Ingredients:
3/4 cup White Popcorn Kernels
1/4 cup Butter flavored Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp Butter flavored Flavacol Popcorn Salt
Melt and mix 1 part salted butter with 1 part coconut oil or use premade Butter flavored Coconut Oil. Regular fine grain salt can replace the Butter flavored Flavacol popping salt if necessary. But, if you can find it, it’s worth it and it makes all the difference in the world.
