The Best Way To Pop Popcorn On The Stove
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Any spices you love
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat.
  2. Once the oil is hot, add a few kernels to the bottom of the pan and cover.
  3. Wait until all of the kernels pop. Then, add ⅓ cup of kernels to the bottom on the pan. Do the best you can to be sure they’re in a single layer. If you like, add salt at this point, too.
  4. Cover the saucepan and remove from the heat for 30-40 seconds.
  5. Then, return pan to the heat. The kernels should begin popping within a few minutes.
  6. Once you hear them begin to pop, move the lid to side the a bit, letting just a tiny bit of air in and out (this will help keep the popcorn from getting soggy).
  7. After a few minutes the popping will slow down. That’s your cue to take it off the heat, take the lid off the pan and transfer the popcorn to large bowl.
  8. Enjoy!
