Directions

  1. Start by cutting a paper grocery sack in half. This will serve as a makeshift serving bowl and it will absorb excess oil.
  2. In a 2 quart pot, combine the oil, margarine and popcorn. Set over high heat, and constantly shake the pan back and forth. After the first kernel of corn pops, place the lid on the pot, and continue shaking. When the popcorn starts to lift the lid up off the pan, remove it from the heat, and hold it over the paper bag until it stops popping.
  3. Pour into the paper sack and season with half of the seasoned salt. Shake the paper sack to distribute the salt. Taste before adding more so you don't make it too salty. You can always add more salt.

Hi, I posted this recipe. I just wanted to let you know the ingredients I use because reviewer "Annie" gave me 1 star because she is having troubles getting it right. I start by buying the best (most expensive) yellow popcorn kernels. Cheaper brands don't pop well. I use Pure Wesson Vegetable Oil and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter to cook them in. Then I top it off with Lawry's Seasoned Salt (remember not to add too much). I hope that helps Annie. When you get it to work I hope you come back and update your review. Thank you and enjoy!

Soooooo easy and delicious, no need to microwave ever again! But! Note that this popcorn can be made really successfully using the same method but with only 1 T of canola oil and 1 T of margarine (I use Smart Balance), the salt will still stick just fine and the fat is cut down a ton. Have fun!

Believe it or not there is a trick to this for those who are afraid of burning the popcorn. Only add 3 kernels to the oil first and when all 3 pop then add the rest of the unpopped kernels. Make sure you shake well so that it is in motion. We also like to add the butter oil that you can get at the grocery store. Delicious and the paper bag gets rid of the extra oil that usually deposits at the bottom of the bowl. I REFUSE to eat microwave popcorn again. Delicious. Thanks for the post.
