One of the best things about camping is making your own food over an open fire. But why settle for hot dogs and s’mores when you can make delicious popcorn?
With a few simple ingredients, you can easily prepare this tasty snack while enjoying the great outdoors. Read on to learn how to make your own popcorn while camping!
What You’ll Need
Making popcorn while camping is as easy as gathering a few simple ingredients. You’ll need some plain or seasoned popcorn kernels, butter, and salt (if desired).
If you have access to an air popper, that works great too! Just make sure you bring enough supplies for at least one batch of popcorn.
Cooking the Popcorn
Once you have all your supplies gathered, it’s time to cook the popcorn! Start by getting a large pot with a lid and adding enough oil or butter to coat the bottom of the pan.
When it’s hot enough, add 1/4 cup of corn kernels to the pot and place the lid on top. As soon as you hear them start popping, shake the pan back and forth over the heat source until all of the kernels are popped.
Make sure not to leave them unattended as they can burn quickly! Once they’re done, pour into a bowl or plate and season with salt if desired.
Serving Up Your Popcorn
Now that your popcorn is cooked up, it’s ready to be served! Serve in individual bowls or plates alongside some other campfire treats like roasted marshmallows or chocolate-dipped pretzels.
Or serve with some homemade caramel sauce for an extra special treat! No matter how you choose to serve it up, everyone will surely enjoy their batch of freshly made campfire popcorn.
There’s nothing quite like making your own snacks while out camping in nature! With just a few simple ingredients and equipment, you can whip up delicious batches of popcorn in no time at all.
So next time you’re out camping and craving something crunchy and salty, break out those pots and pans because it’s time to make some popcorn! Enjoy!
