Add three (3) tablespoons of unrefined coconut oil to a large heavy pot.
Sprinkle 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons of Flavacol on top of the coconut oil
Add three (3) unpopped kernels on top of the coconut oil, set the burner to medium high (on my stove I set it to the number six) and cover the pot.
After all three kernels have popped (approximately 3-4 minutes), add the rest of the kernels to the pot, place the lid back on and turn off the burner. Make sure the kernels are evenly spread out (should be one layer).
Let the kernels sit in the oil with the burner off for 60 seconds.
After 60 seconds have passed, turn the burner back on medium high. Once the kernels start popping at a good pace, open the lid slightly to let the steam escape (this ensures we don’t get any soggy popcorn).
If you have a good heavy pot, the heat will be evenly distributed and will pop almost all of the kernels within 3-5 minutes. Once the popping stops or has slowed down significantly, turn off the burner.
Carefully remove the lid (watch out for the steam) and pour the popcorn into a serving bowl.
