Popcorn Three Ways

Popcorn makes a tasty snack and it is a whole grain. Pop it from kernels and add your favorite spices for a perfect homemade treat!


  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • Seasonings (amounts of seasonings are for 10 cups of popped pop corn) 
    • Spicy: 1 teaspoon chili powder + 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • Sweet: 2 teaspoons cinnamon + 1 Tablespoon sugar
    • Savory: 2 teaspoons ranch dressing seasoning


  1. Wash hands with warm, soapy water.
  2. In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Test that the oil is ready by adding 3 popcorn kernels to the pot and covering it with the lid. 
  4. Once the test kernels pop, take them out. Add the rest of the kernels. Cover the pop with the lid. 
  5. Let the popcorn pop. Carefully slide the pot back and forth to keep the kernels from burning. 
  6. When the popping slows down, remove the pot from the heat. 
  7. Add your chosen seasonings. 
  8. Enjoy!
