Celebrate National Popcorn Day!!

National Popcorn Day

We know popcorn is a delicious snack, but did you know?

Popcorn is a whole grain & its simplest form a low fat, low calorie, healthy food. 3 cups of popcorn are equal to one serving from the grain group. Organic popcorn is not genetically modified, without artificial additives or preservatives. Popcorn is sugar free, provides energy-producing complex carbohydrates & contains the fiber our bodies need! Celebrate National Popcorn Day with this easy recipe we modified using our high smoke point, Villa Gabriella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil for a delicious & healthy snack. Toss with drizzled olive oil, parmesan cheese, salt or your favorite spices.

Makes 2 quarts

Simple ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. Villa Gabriella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup high quality (preferably non GMO) popcorn kernels
  • 1 3-quart covered saucepan
  • 1 Tbsp. or more (to taste) ofoil
  • Salt, spices to taste

Easy directions

  1. Heat the oil in saucepan over a medium flame. To ensure evenly popped corn, place 3 or 4 popcorn kernels into the oil & cover the pan
  2. When the kernels pop, add 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in an even layer
  3. Cover, remove from heat & count to 30. (This first heats the oil to the right temperature & waiting 30 seconds allows the other kernels to a near-popping temperature so when cooking resumes, they pop evenly)
  4. Return the pan to the medium heat & cover
  5. The popcorn should begin popping together. As popping increases, gently shift the pan back & forth over the heat
  6. Continue to shift the pan over the heat & for crispier popcorn keep the lid slightly ajar to release steam from pan
  7. As the popping decreases to several seconds between pops, remove pan from heat covered, let sit 2 minutes.
  8. Transfer popcorn to a wide bowl
  9. Lightly drizzle oil over the popcorn & toss to distribute
  10. Season to taste & enjoy!
