also you can make your own microwave popcorn with just a paper lunch bag...u could even use you grape seed oil. plus you can reuse the bag over and over....


Hooray for real popcorn!

This is so funny - I totally just did a vlog about popping popcorn on the stove:



I have been starving for popcorn and fried chicken since I read this last night. I have consumed many more calories than a serving of either would provide in an attempt to distract my stomach, but nothing seems to be working. Temptress!

Oh my gosh, you just brought back 18 years worth of childhood memories. My grandmother used to make popcorn this way. She had the gas stove and the copper-bottomed pot. Oil was measured like a shot of Jack Daniels. The amount of popcorn was measured with a dixie cup. As soon as the sizzling started, she would shake the pan every 20 seconds or so until it got popping. When the popcorn was just starting to get going, she would pull the lid open just enough to let kernals come flying out and my brothers and I would dive after those first few that hit the counter - (occaisionally ending in a fist fight in which nobody got popcorn.) This was also my first introduction to garlic as she would top her's off with said melted butter (and LOTS of it) and seemingly a half bottle of garlic salt. I can damn near smell it right now! Great post!


I use a saucepan and plain ol' veggie oil, but that's how I make it, too.

I have a microwave popcorn popper, so I make very cheap (and non-greasy) popcorn. Then I add some butter when it's done, so it's greasy after all.


We make our popcorn like this every time (though we use canola oil) and add pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, and a little salt (no butter when it's popped in oil). YUM.
