Stovetop popcorn is my favorite. I mastered how to make it on the stovetop a while back and I can never compare the packaged pre buttered stuff to it. The trick is to heat up your corn oil in a saucepan on a medium high heat and throw in 3 to 4 kernels. When those pop, take the saucepan off the heat and pour in your kernels. You don’t need a lot! Put it back on the heat and cover but make sure that you have a bit of an opening to get the steam out. When they start popping, after about 20 seconds pull it off the heat again. A tip is to shake the pan back and forth a bit though out the process so that the kernels don’t stick to the bottom of the pan and burn. If you want butter, put it in the pan after you’ve put the popcorn in a bowl and that will heat it up super quick. My friday night consisted of my stovetop popcorn and a lot of Friday Night Light episodes.
Have you ever made popcorn on the stove? What is your favorite way to have popcorn?
