Ingredients

  • ½ cup Popcorn Kernels
  • 2 tablespoon Grapeseed oil
  • Season (optional)

Instructions

  • Add the grapeseed oil or oil of your choice.

  • The popcorn will begin to pop. This will take a few minutes.
  • Transfer the popcorn to a bowl. Repeat the process if needed.
  • Season your popcorn as desired and enjoy.

Notes

Instant Pot popcorn Recipe Notes

I did not use a glass lid. I actually used the instant pot lid to make this recipe. However, I would recommend if you use the original IP lid, you do not cover it completely. 
A fitted glass lid with work best for this recipe. Feel free to experiment. 
Be sure the setting is set to MORE – HIGH as the low temperature will not work well to pop the kernels. 
Depending on the instant pot you have, you may get a “burn” notice. If you do, do not be alarmed. It is simply a warning sensor. The popcorn is not burning.
