Skip store-bought popcorn this time! Homemade popcorn is fun to make and tastes a million times better.
Pressure cooker popcorn is also much healthier and cheaper than both microwave air-popped popcorn and movie theater popcorn (but tastes just as good!)
Turn on your instant pot and press the sauté button. Change the temperature to high. Once the instant pot shows it’s hot, add the coconut oil and stir until melted.
Add 1/2 cup of kernels and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Stir until the corn is coated in the oil. Continue to heat for another 30 seconds. The corn kernels will begin to sizzle.
Cover with a clear glass lid and let the popcorn cook. Continue to let the popcorn pop for 5 minutes. Turn off the instant pot and let the popped corn sit until no more un-popped kernels left.
Transfer the hot popcorn to a large bowl, and pour the melted butter over top, if desired.
