Close to Perfect Popcorn (Cause well ...
I learned this method of making popcorn partly from a cooking show and partly from watching my father ...
10-12 minutes total
3 tablespoons peanut oil (trust me get the peanut oil its worth it)
3 ounces popcorn kernels, approximately 1/2 cup
1/2 teaspoon popcorn salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
- Get a metal mixing bowl, one with a ridge in the bottom would be best, but one with a flat bottom will work too as long as you keep it moving.
If you don't want to pay too much for store bought popcorn salt, take about half cup of Kosher Salt put it in your food processor and give it a few spins.
Store in sealed container.
To pop the corn, Place the oil, popcorn and salt in a large, 6-quart, metal mixing bowl.
Cover with heavy-duty aluminum foil and poke 10 slits in the top with a knife.
Place the bowl over medium heat and keep moving constantly using a pair of tongs to hold the bowl.
Continue shaking until the popcorn finishes popping, approximately 3-6 minutes.
Remove the bowl from the heat and carefully remove the foil.
Stir in any salt that is on the side of the bowl.
Melt the butter in the microwave.
Slowly drizzle over the popcorn, while spinning the bowl.
For perfect butter coating, get a paper grocery bag (don't try this with plastic) put the popcorn in the bag and drizzle butter over the top and close tightly and shake vigorously.
Trust me this is the best popcorn you will EVER taste.
