Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. And while I try to keep it healthy most of the time, every so often, there is a craving that can only be sated with buttery, salty popcorn! A recent study confirms some of what has been found previously: that popcorn is good for you! Dieters rejoice! It is full of antioxidants and isn’t processed like some other snacks. The article is quick to point out that popcorn, while beneficial, can’t replace fruits and veggies, and preparation unlike that of my craving-struck self is probably best.

It’s not difficult at all- just grow it, let it dry, and take it off the cob. I grew some as a kid. Watch out for squirrels!
I make popcorn in my heavy cast iron dutch oven. The only thing I put on it is some salt (there’s oil on it from the popping process already). Adding butter actually takes something away from it. I’ll take this healthy, homemade snack any day!
