Homemade Popcorn

by Jennifer Willis

Homemade popcorn is cheap, easy to make, and my favorite treat. No air popper or microwave - Just good old-fashioned popcorn

We use a 6-quart pan to pop our popcorn, but a smaller saucepan works just great if you want to make smaller amounts.

Popcorn on the Cob

  • Turn the burner on the stove top to medium heat
  • Cover the bottom of the pan with oil
  • Pour 3/4 cup of popcorn seeds into the center of the pan.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and wait for the popcorn to pop.
  • When the popping slows down, turn off the heat.
  • Sprinkle with salt and you’re done. You don’t even need to add butter because the oil takes the place of the butter.
