Easy Backpacking Stove Popcorn Recipe | CloudLine Apparel

Popcorn is one of the easiest snacks to make when backpacking and hiking. If you have a backpacking stove and a pot, the only ingredients you need are popcorn, oil, and salt.



Cook Time: About 3 minutes


  1. Popcorn kernels
  2. Oil (we recommend coconut oil when backpacking)
  3. Salt of other preferred seasoning


  1. Stove (we used a Jetboil Minimo)
  2. Pot with lid
  3. Spoon

  1. Add about a tbsp of oil to the pot
  2. Pour in a single layer of kernels (about 1/4 - 1/2 cup depending on pot size)
  3. Place lid on pot and set stove to medium low
  4. Shake pot as kernels pop. There will be plenty of steam.
  5. When popping slows turn off stove
  6. Remove lid with caution to avoid remaining steam and flying kernels
  7. Season as desired

Hiking... it is both calming and energizing. It is when I often feel most free. It can be whatever you want it to be- thoughtful or meditative, relaxing or challenging. It is a way to connect with the natural world, with others, and with yourself. It makes you more appreciative, and helps you understand your relative size. You discover beautiful things on every trail. It is one of the healthiest and most refreshing activities available.

Chill bumps bristled on my arms. Gazing out over snow-tipped peaks, I felt torn. After hiking one of my first of Colorado’s 14ers, I wanted to remain in the breathtaking landscape surrounding me. I had entered another world, one that only existed above the clouds. I longed to linger there, but I was growing colder and colder with every breath. My mind clung to the chill as I shivered. It was summer. While others sported short sleeves and light jackets, I was swimming in multiple layers with gloves, a Buff, and ear warmers all haphazardly pulled on, looking like the whip cream and a cherry atop an icy sundae.
