Homemade Popcorn

I grew up with my mom making us this homemade popcorn. It filled our bellies with a warm salty snack and filled my memories with fun times. Now I make this for my family. The smell of popcorn throughout the house has brought my little guy out of his bed and down the stairs with his adorable little giddy smile convincing his way onto the couch and into the bowl! I'm telling you, it brings families together and creates special memories now for their childhood.

Cover the bottom of the pot with the olive oil until it just starts to go up the side of the pot. Sprinkle in 1/2 cup of kernels. Sprinkle with sea salt. Top with the lid, leaving it cracked and ajar. This is important. It lets the steam escape. Turn heat to medium high. Popcorn will slowly begin to pop violently. When you hear it slowing down. Remove from heat. Pour into bowl, sprinkle with a bit more salt and devour!  Parmesan cheese is another awesome topping to make it even more yummy!
