Prepare a bowl, or two, or three depending on how many flavours you fancy making.
Place the cooking pot over medium heat. Add the coconut oil and the corn kernels which should be sufficient and not more than covering the bottom of the pot you decide to pop the corn in.
As soon as you put the kernels in, place the lid on medium heat. The lid should be placed slightly ajar.
The corn will begin to pop so make sure you pick up the pot by its handle(s) and, while holding on to the lid, slightly and gently shake it for a couple of times during a batch, placing it back on the heat straight after each shake. This will help the kernels (that are not popped) to pop and the ones that are popped not to burn, by moving them around rather than staying still for the whole cooking time.
Once the popping has stopped, vigilantly remove the lid and place the popcorn into your prepared bowl. Be prepared that you might still get one pop just to scare you - do not drop the lid ;-) ha ha. Those late popping ones really get me, every time!
Add the topping you wish and give them a little stir. See recipe notes for some ideas on toppings.
