Coconut oil is great for popping popcorn because it can take high heat. It adds a slight coconut flavor to the popcorn, but it isn’t overwhelming. You can use canola oil if you don’t have coconut oil.
To make in the Family-Size Microwave Popcorn Maker, add oil, sugar, salt and popcorn kernels in the popper. Cover with the lid, leave the cup cover open to vent. Place the popper offset in the microwave. Microwave 4-5 minutes or until popping slows, about 1-2 seconds in between pops. Let popcorn stand 1-2 minutes to let the mixture crisp up.
