    Popcorn

    Popcorn is by far my favorite food. I air pop it, then put real butter and salt on it.

    How does everyone else here make it?

    Re: Popcorn

    Cook it stove top in Corn oil then pour real butter over th top.

    coconut oil is preferred... but costs too much.

    Re: Popcorn

    Usually get the butter kind and add some of the flavoring sometimes. Orville Redenbocker has a kind that comes with a pouch that you can add more butter to it as well. Don't have the patience to air pop it really.

    Re: Popcorn

    I've got one of those stove top makers with the spinner on top. I cook in vegetable oil then top it with real butter, salt and a splash of lowerys. Not exactly a healthy snack.

    Re: Popcorn

    Jolly Time is great. Favorite store brand. Im not just saying that because I liive here. Making it out of the pan is the best way to prepare it if you have the time.

    Re: Popcorn

    Fan of microwave popcorn, extra butter


    Air popped was good way back when, but havent' had it in years... as for "real" popcorn done in a stirrer, lots of salt, sometimes butter. Occasionally like to try flavored salts but sodium salt is still #1

    Re: Popcorn

    Something about the popcorn at Benchwarmer's...Love it.
    Also a big fan of the chocolate covered popcorn that starts to appear this time of year.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Popcorn

    Orville Redenbocker is expensive, but love that pop corn. Lightly buttered and salted is best for me.

    Re: Popcorn

    I love using the popcorn from my uncle's fields. It tastes just as good. I add plenty of butter and salt.
