I Pop Corn The Old Fashioned Way

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 28 People

    It's The Best, The Old Fashioned Way

      I will eat microwavable popcorn but only if I'm desperate for popcorn and that's all I have.  It seems too dry for me.  My sisters and I started popping popcorn when we were very young.  On weekends we would always pop a huge bowl full.  We would watch...

    Just Like Mama's

    In A Deep Pot

    Only occasionally do I have access to a microwave. So if I want to enjoy popcorn I must make it in a deep pot. Its teflon coated and has a copper top. So I could make air popped popcorn with absolutely no oil or salt at all. I have tried that. If I use oil, I don't need to add...
