Pop Corn The Old Fashioned Way

We usually spend time with the grandkids at their house because that is where all their "stuff" is, but when they come over here, you can bet there will be chairs pulled out from the table with caves fashioned from blankets. There will be things to color and cut out and play pretend, and other simple old-fashioned fun things that don't require batteries. And, I can guarantee you that there will be always be popcorn popped, on the stove, just like my mama did and just like her mama before her did. I want that same feeling to reside in the memories of my own grandchildren. So go make some homemade popcorn the old fashioned way. You'll save a few bucks, and you'll get to see the magic happen.

Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons of canola or vegetable oil

  • 2

    tablespoons of unsalted butter

  • 1/2

    cup of raw popcorn kernels

  • Large pinch of kosher salt

  • Add Cayenne pepper or any other flavors you like.

Directions

Set aside a large paper grocery bag. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and three corn kernels in a large heavy bottomed lidded pot, cover and heat over medium to medium high heat until you hear a pop. Uncover and add in the 2 tablespoons of butter and the popcorn, stir together and cover the pot. Using oven mitts to protect your hands and arms from the steam, with two potholders to hold your pot, gently shake the pot back and forth over the burner constantly until popping accelerates and then begins to slow down, with a second or two delay between pops. Remove from heat and carefully pour the popcorn into the paper bag. Season with a large pinch of kosher salt, close the bag, shake well. Transfer to a large bowl, or several small ones and serve immediately.
