How to Make Popcorn Not in a Microwave

If I told you you could make fresh popcorn for the same amount of time it took to microwave a bag, would you?

I don’t like microwave popcorn. I think it tastes fake and gross, plus I can’t control what does into it. In fact, not only is it as fast, tastes better, and can be better for you, it is CHEAPER. Win Win…

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 cup vegetable oil
salt

Place a large pot on the stove and turn the heat up high. Pour in your popcorn kernels.

Once the kernels are in, add the oil. Move the mixture around so that each kernel is coated by oil.

Cover the pot. You should begin to hear popping. To pop the whole pot, it takes about 3-5 minutes, but varies. Listen to the popping and shake the pot a few times. When you hear the popping dwindle and result in only a few pops, turn off the heat and remove the popcorn from the heat. You do not want to burn the bottom.

Pour the hot popcorn into a bowl and salt it. Make sure to toss around the popcorn so each bit gets a little bit of salt before you add more.

See, easy and delicious. I promise you fresh popcorn tastes worlds better than something in a bag. This way you can also dress it up any way you like. Try adding a little cayenne for a kick. Cinnamon and sugar is also delicious. Or my personal favorite, pepper and Parmesan cheese. YUM! Movie night just got a whole lot better.
