Stovetop Popcorn - Way Easier Than Pie!
Wednesday, November 11, 2009 | Time: 9:44 AM



I dont know why everyone doesn't do this. Or maybe they do and I just didn't know.
Stovetop popcorn is better than that stuff you buy in a bag. Even better than what you get at the movies. Probably the best popcorn you've ever tasted.
Trust me, you will never never never go back...
Also its a super cheap snack with endless flavor possibilities.

All you need are some popcorn kernels and a pot with a tight fitting lid, a little butter and, maybe, a dash of salt.


Stovetop Popcorn

2-3 tb salted butter (or oil, but butter is best for flavor)
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
optional: 1 tsp salt (if using oil or unsalted butter)

Heat a large pot on medium/high heat, melt butter, put in 3-4 popcorn kernels. Cover with lid. When those kernels pop, pour in the rest of the kernels. Shake occasionally to distribute butter and to keep from burning. Pop until one or two seconds between pops, like you would in the microwave.

That's it. Pour those suckers into a bowl and add a little salt if you need to. Munch while watching, preferably, a wonderful romantic comedy like Cassanova or Moliere... <3

One good classic add in I like is garlic powder. Anything Mrs Dash is generally good too.

For a sweet treat, add: cinnamon+sugar, brown sugar+butter, warm peanut butter, warm nutella, maple syrup+ nutmeg.. etc etc...
There are several great recipes CDKitchen, too, check em out :)
