PERFECT POPCORN

 

  • Cooking Time: 5 minutes
  • Servings: 5
  • Preparation Time: 2 minutes

Ingredients

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

Directions

  • 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.
