It's really easy to do.
Pour 1/4 cup Vegetable oil in a large stockpot, pick one that has a lid and smooth bottom. Turn the heat to medium high and drop one kernel of corn into the pot and cover.
Once your one kernel pops, pour 1/2 cup of kernels into the pot and cover again. This is not something you can walk away from but it only takes a few minutes.
You have to shimmy the pot back and forth continuously until the popping basically stops, kinda like listening for the microwave kind.
And that's it! Pour it into a bowl, I add salt, cause I love it.
They make some fun popcorn seasonings too these days that are pretty decent, or you can use some Parmesan cheese, or a sprinkle of dry ranch salad dressing mix.
We watched "The Change Up" with Jason Bateman, and Ryan Reynolds, it was a pretty decent movie, and my husband even stayed awake for the whole thing, you know that's a good sign!
