Recipe: Popcorn

Whirlypop popcorn. This is one thing that will be a regular feature at my campsite. The Whirlypop makes perfect popcorn on a Coleman stove. I’m sure shaking a foil tin of Jiffy Pop over the campfire works too, but I’ll take my Whirlypop.

Base measurements:

1/2 cup organic Jiffy Pop popcorn

3 Tablespoons of peanut oil. I use peanut oil because it has a high smoke point and no taste.

Place popcorn and oil in the Whirlypop. Fire up the camp stove, turn down to medium heat. Turn the handle on the Whirly pop slowly. When the corn starts popping, steam will come out of the steam vents. When there’s 2 seconds in between pops, the popcorn is done.

Serve with melted butter and salt or any seasoning you like.
