Just like the movies
on October 20, 2011
This popcorn is awesome. It pops perfectly with very few kernels left unpoped. Add butter flavored salt, and it taste just like movie theater popcorn and is so addicting that I eat it almost every night. There is so much in the bag that it will take me a while to get through it, but that means I wont have to worry about running out anytime soon.
When doing this on the stove in a covered pot (cover slightly tilted to let steam out), the secret is to heat the oil (3 Tbls) with just a few kernels, and I also sprinkle the butter flavored salt on the oil (about a cap full) before the oil gets hot. When those kernels start to pop telling you the oil is hot enough, turn off the heat and add the rest of the kernels (1/4 cup), cover and count to 30. Letting them sit for 30 seconds in the hot oil with the heat off will pre-heat them to pop more consistently. After the 30, turn the heat back on and once they start to pop, shake the pop occationally to keep the unpoped kernels on the bottom until you hear very few pops, and its done. You'll love it. Only add salt to the hot oil and not other flavored seasoning. Most will burn in the oil so it best to add those to the popcorn after.
