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.

« Reply #1 on: August 16, 2010, 07:37:01 am »
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.

The possible root reasons, she says, “can be because of the birth of another sibling, when the focus and energy of the parents shift from the older child to the younger one.  It can also be due to favoritism, or when a child perceives the parents to be taking another sibling's side.”

What else can you share about sibling rivalry?
