  • 75 g popping corn
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil

Method

  1. On a high heat, heat the oil in a large pan
  2. Add just a few kernels of popping corn and close the lid
  3. When they pop, your oil is ready, tip the rest of the popping corn into the oil and quickly close the lid
  4. Holding the lid with oven gloves, shimmy the pan so the corn will be covered with the oil
  5. When all of the activity has ceased, remove the lid and pour into a large bowl
  6. At this point you can sprinkle with salt and eat, or move to the next stage of your recipe
