Hi guys .
So in this video , I'm gonna teach you how to make popcorn without using any butter or oil .
So the first thing you're gonna wanna do is grab a pot , um , a decent size pot .
You're gonna need to have a lid off as well .
So this is the lid for this pot and you're gonna want to heat this up on really low heat .
So put it on , put the fire on the lowest setting possible .
So what I do is I'm making it so that the fire is barely on .
You wanna find the sweet spot where the fire is barely on , but then it actually stays for the entire time you're cooking .
So I'm gonna leave it right here .
And the next thing I'm gonna do while that heats up is I'm gonna weigh out the kernels .
So over here it says one serving is two tablespoons and two tablespoons is 28 g .
So me and my wife , we like to eat a really big size bowl when we eat it at night .
Um , because we like to watch a movie and we don't like it when the popcorn runs out .
So normally what I do is I make two pots .
Um , each with 100 g of kernels .
If you put any more than 100 g , uh you might have some uneven popping and , and the kernels might burn as well .
So 100 g I found , uh found is the sweet spot .
It makes just the right amount of popcorn and it doesn't burn .
Um And then I can make two , I can make that twice .
So in total , it's about 200 g .
So I'll put 100 g into the cup here .
So this is 100 g .
Um I don't know if that looks like a lot to you , but normally we do 100 and 75 to 200 g .
So this should be getting hot now .
So as you can see , there's no oil or there's no butter inside , it's just an empty pot .
So we're gonna put this in and then we're gonna cover it up and then we're just gonna let that heat up .
So this next step is really important .
What you need to do is every minute you need to shake the pot because you don't want the kernels to burn .
You can't wait a minute and a half .
That's also OK .
So I'm not really timing it .
I just kind of uh kind of know by now like when a minute to a minute and a half has gone by and then I was , you just gotta grab it and take it like this .
And that's all you need to do within uh five or six minutes time .
This is gonna start popping .
Uh And then you just gotta pour it out into a bowl when it , when the popping stops .
So this is about , this is the bowl that we use .
Nice and big .
Um And we're gonna fill it all the way to the top .
That's how we like our popcorn .
Um And if you're wondering when to add salt and , or if you have cinnamon or sugar , you wanna add , I suggest putting it on after we do have this cinnamon sugar .
So I tried putting it in the pot as well and it didn't turn out great .
So , uh yeah , I just put it on at the end .
Um , but for me and my wife , we just like it with uh , we just like playing popcorn .
So we're gonna , once this pops , that's pretty much it , right .
So it's pretty easy .
So we'll just hang tight for a bit .
It's probably time to shake it now .
So once , once it starts to heat up , you'll see the condensation on the lid .
So you might see there some water droplets , it might drip into the popcorn a little bit as well , which is totally fine .
This is exactly what you want and we'll just keep shaking it every minute and pretty soon you'll start to see this begin to pop .
So while that's heating up this is the popcorn that we've been using .
Eaten popcorn .
We also ordered some other brands from I Herb as well .
But this one is , uh , seems to be pretty good .
A lot of recipes that you find on popcorn pact will tell you to use butter and oil .
But as you will see here , you don't need butter and oil at all and it's so much healthier when you eat it .
This way , it's 1 g of fat if you don't put any butter or oil .
So it's pretty much just pure carbs and there's a lot of fiber in popcorn as well .
So popcorn is actually a really healthy snack .
So it's starting to pop now and we're gonna shake it again .
So while that's heating up , I'm gonna weigh out the 2nd 100 g here .
As soon as that's done , I'm gonna pour the popcorn out into this bowl and then I'm gonna start heating up the next batch of popcorn .
Um , if you are in a rush and you feel like the pot is taking too long to heat up .
One thing that I can recommend is actually putting the fire on high heat , but don't put the popcorn in yet , just heat up the pot until it's really hot and then lower the fire .
So it's down to like it's barely on .
And then after that , pour the popcorn in , then just keep it on that .
Uh Now the popping has stopped .
So this is the time to take it out .
So I'm just gonna wait another five or five or 10 seconds .
So there's no more popping happening right now .
So that means it's time to take it out .
So I'm just gonna take that off and I'm just gonna pour it out here .
And then the next batch is gonna go in once this pot is done , we're gonna have a giant bowl of popcorn .
This popcorn is just as you saw .
It's just fresh out of the pot now and it's nice and hot and yeah , and it tastes really good .
Um Some of you might find this plain , but this is the way that I like it .
If you're used to movie style popcorn , they do put a salt and butter in that .
So it's gonna be , it's gonna taste a little bit different .
Um , or if you order them or if you normally use microwave popcorn , which is from the or will brand .
Um , that also contains butter .
So it's gonna be a little bit different .
But if you can get used to eating it like this , then it can be a really healthy snack .
You can even eat popcorn when you're trying to lose weight .
Um , or if you just need additional fiber or , or a night snack , it's honestly the perfect snack .
So yeah , I mean , it's simple and easy to make and the next batch is starting to pop already .
Hm , I got a little bit distracted with this video .
So I think a few of those kernels are starting to burn , but uh I think it's gonna be fine .
All right .
