Great food with a Southern accent

Stovetop Popcorn

Stovetop Popcorn


3 tablespoons vegetable oil

¾ cup of popcorn kernels

3 tablespoons butter, melted



Put a 6 quart pot with a lid on the stove over medium heat.

Add the vegetable oil and wait 3 minutes for the oil to heat up.

Add the popcorn kernels.

Shake the pot around to make sure the kernels are covered in oil and in a single layer in the bottom of your pot.

Cover the pot with a lid, but tilt it so the steam can escape.

When you hear the first kernels start to pop, shake the pot to move the kernels around.*

When there are 2 seconds between pops, turn off the stove and remove your pot.

Pour your popcorn into a bowl.  Add melted butter and salt to taste.

*Don’t leave your popcorn.  Cooking popcorn smells delicious.  Burnt popcorn does not and it only take a minute to burn.
