It’s Saturday night – what does that mean? Movie night!! What do you need with movie night? Old Fashioned Popcorn!! So much better than microwave popcorn…microwave popcorn has chemicals, yuck. Here’s what you need…

Ingredients

  • 1 stove – yes, you need a stove
  • 1 big pot with a good fitting lid
  • oil – I use sunflower oil
  • popping corn
  • salt (just a bit)

Step one – put the cold pot on the cold stove (don’t turn it on yet) and fill it with a thin layer of oil. Then add the popping corn (still, don’t turn the stove on yet) and shake the pot back and forth so all of the kernels are covered.

Now…turn the stove on to level 7 ish and do not cover the pot yet.

Once you see the fist kernel pop, put the lid on.
