Olive Oil Popcorn

My friend Marcia made this for us on a recent playdate. It's SO yummy -- the olive oil and salt give the popcorn enough flavor that you don't need to use butter. A healthy and delicious alternative!

Put 3-4 Tbsp of olive oil and one kernel of popcorn in a 12 quart stock pot.

Turn the heat on to medium-high.

When the kernel pops, add more popcorn, filling (or nearly filling) the bottom of the pan.

Put the lid on and let the popcorn pop. Shake the pan (or at least jostle it) every so often.

After the popping has slowed down considerably, remove the pan from the heat and give the remaining kernels a chance to pop.

Remove the popped corn from the pan immediately so it doesn't scorch.

Add sea salt to taste.
