  • If you have a popcorn popper that requires oil to pop, if it is high heat, please use coconut oil
  • If you are using a large pan, 3 Tbsp La Terra Extra Virgin Olive Oil will work if heat is medium high
  • Place a few kernels in pan, when you hear the first few pops add the remaining cup of popcorn
  • Shake the pan gently over the heat with the lid slightly open. When you hear the popping slow down, remove from heat
