A couple years ago I looked into the finer points of cooking popcorn.
Coconut oil, Flavacol, and medium-high heat turned our humble Whirly-Pop and generic yellow popcorn into a treat I am truly proud of.
I was not to keen on putting the seasoning in the Whirly-Pop initially but it works like a champ.
The coconut oil also makes cleaning the cooker incredibly easy.

Hmmm.... Popcorn pizza.

We like Orville Redenbacher gourmet popped in coconut oil and topped with Spike seasoning.

Alright guys quick question for you!! I ran out of oil and I'm really wanting popcorn but don't want to run to store can I substitute it for all vegetable shortening and if so how much should I use to make 3/4 of a cup of kernels? I normally use 1/4 cup of oil

Re: The Popcorn Thread

Yes, you can use shortening. I've never tried it, but I know my way around a kitchen and you should be able to substitute that for oil.
Might use a touch less though. A quarter cup is a lot regardless of what kind you're using.
Let it melt before you put the kernels in.

Let us know how it goes.

Well I found a bottle of coconut oil my wife had and I'm by no means a coconut fan but when the mind wants popcorn I'll do what needs to happen lol. Now all I can do is smell coconut and I hate it but the popcorn taste quite nice. It actually might be the best batch I've ever made

Re: The Popcorn Thread

Yip, I hate coconuts too, but the oil is amazing. I buy it in 9# cans just for popcorn.
