Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons oil (NOT butter)
  • 12 cup popcorn
  • 3 -4 tablespoons melted butter (optional)
  • salt

Directions

  1. Put the oil in a 4 quart heavy pot and let it heat over medium heat for 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in the kernels, turning with a spoon so that they are evenly covered with oil, then spread them in one layer on the bottom of the pot. (I just shake them around a bit).
  3. Cover the pot, leaving a small space at the edge for escaping steam. As soon as the first kernel pops, move the pot gently and continuously back and forth over medium-high heat until the popping stops.
  4. Turn into a warm bowl. Toss with melted butter, if desired, and salt to taste.
