Niels asked for popcorn this afternoon, but I only had olive oil and coconut oil in the house. I didn't really want the olive flavor so I decided to try the coconut oil. Oh my god, it's so good! I don't think I'll ever make popcorn with canola or safflower oil again!
Ok, I'll be trying this. I love coconut, but never thought to do popcorn in my coconut oil.
I wouldn't have thought to try it, except that I was out of anything else other than olive (I didn't want the flavor), sesame and peanut (both have too low smoke points) oil. It doesn't taste coconut-y at all, just utterly delicious. My acupuncturist suggested also trying red palm when I told her how good it was. I might have to get some of that next time I'm at the store.
