How do you make a perfect homemade buttered popcorn? Old style po, no popcorn maker. Should the heat be high or low? Step by step please.

hi mommy jazz! I chance upon this perfect popcorn recipe on the web. I tried this at home and it has a very nice outcome. Hereunder is the step by step procedure.

What you need:
Canola Oil (or any high smoke point oil)
High quality popcorn kernels

- heat the oil in a sauce pan on medium high heat
- try to put 3 or 4 popcorn kernels into the oil and cover the pan
- when the kernel pop, add more popcorn kernels.  It should be in an even layer. Cover the pan again and remove from heat for 30 seconds.
- return the pan to the heat. the popcorn should begin popping and all at once. Once the popping starts, gently shake the pan by moving it back and forth over the burner. With the lid slightly ajar to let the steam from the popcorn release.
- once popping slows for several seconds, remove the pan from heat.
- put popcorn on a wax paper and spread evenly on the table
- heat butter until it melts. whisk salt until it completely mixed
- start pouring mixture on your popcorn, then place popcorn into a bowl

Ay, does that mean pag nag umpisa mag pop, I have to open the lid and put some more kernels? Hindi kaya ako matalsikan ng popcorn?

Will try this, thanks!

Possible kaya magaya pocorn ng Chef Tony's na homemade? hmmmm....

When you add the remaining kernels it won't pop right away so don't worry po.    the first 3-4 kernels that you put in, by then, for sure it already popped.

Popcorn may actually be packed with more antioxidants than we may have thought. Popcorn is also naturally high in fiber and considered a whole grain food.

Saan po nakakabili ng pang flavor sa popcorn like those used in Taters? White cheese, barbeque? Kasi puro powder cheese lang meron sa supermarket, sawa na ako.

Jolly time? if I'm not mistaken, yan din yung nabibili sa 7-11 na ipapa microwave mo. Yes, I like that too. Bumibili kami niyan, actually ako lang ang may gusto para maiba naman ang lasa ng popcorn. Sawa na ako sa usual popcorn I make at home. The kids however, don't care. Basta popcorn, kahit akong brand gusto nila. Personal fav ko of course is Chef tony's.
I have a question. Will it be better if I use more oil as in lubog yung kernels? Will it make the popcorn puffier?

This is what we usually do kapag wala kaming ready na microwavable popcorn sa bahay: bili ka lang ng brown paper bag na mas malaki ng konti sa bag ng microwavable popcorn bag. Put a handful of popcorn inside the bag then fold mo ng mga half inch yung opening ng bag ng mga 3 to 4 times. Put it in the microwave and cook it in high for 3 minutes pero bantayan mo pa din. Kung wala ka ng marinig na pop for 3 seconds i-off mo na. For the butter naman, put butter in a bowl, put it in the microwave and heat it for 5 to 7 seconds. Put your cooked popcorn sa isang malaking container with cover. Pour the melted butter then mix it. Then cover the container then shake it. You can add iodized salt or any flavoring before shaking it. Yung brown paper bag pwd din ireuse basta hnd pa butas at wala pang sunog na part. :)

Yung mano-mano sa kaldero na may takip nagawa ko na din yun kaso nakakapagod haha. Put mga 2 tbsp oil sa kaldero tapos put the popcorn mga 2 handfuls siguro dpende sa laki ng kaldero. Pag mainit na start shaking it. Tapos balik mo sa stove para maheat. Tapos shake mo ulit. Pag wala marinig na pop, ibalik ulit sa kawali. naku yun lang pla naaalala ko. Matagal ko na kasi hnd nagagawa. Highschool pa yta ako nyan. Simula kasi nagkamicrowave napadali ang pagluto ng popcorn. Favorite kasi ng buong family ko ang popcorn! :)
