In a large, heavy bottom pot, add the coconut oil and turn the heat to medium-high. Once the coconut oil has melted, add 3 corn kernels, cover the pot and listen for the kernels to pop.

Once the 3 kernels have popped, add all the remaining kernels to the pot and give the pot a good shake.

Continue cooking the kernels while listening for the popping to stop, approximately 1-2 minutes.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and salt. With a spatula, stir until combined.

Pour the syrup over the popcorn and stir to combine. Work quickly as the syrup hardens fast.

Spread the popcorn in an even layer and bake in the preheated 250 degree oven for 1 hour.

Store at room temperature in an air tight container for up the 3 days.
