Perfect Popcorn

Serves 5 | Prep Time 2 minutes | Cook Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
Melted butter, optional
Salt, optional


Note: It's best to use a deep, heavy pan. Use only as many kernels as cover a single layer in the bottom of the pan. Use a neutral-flavored oil with a high smoking point, such as canola.


Directions:


Cover bottom of a 3 quart pan with thin coat of oil.


Place over medium-high heat


Add kernels to cover the bottom of pan in one layer.


Cover.


You do not need to shake the pan as the popping keeps the kernels moving.


The popping will take 3 to 5 minutes.


When the popping slows to 2 seconds between kernels (instead of the early rapid-fire), remove pan from heat.


Transfer popcorn to a large bowl.


Add melted butter and salt as desired and toss well.


Serve immediately.

Notes

My mom's perfect popcorn was made on Sunday nights. We would watch "The Wonderful World of Disney" and snack on popcorn.
