This way of making popcorn was great! After making three batches of popcorn, we ended up changing/doing the following:
The total amount of oil/butter in the recipe is 5 Tbs. Our boys like extra butter flavor, so we used only 1 Tbs. of oil and then used 4 Tbs. butter (we use Earth’s Balance non-hydrogenated vegan ‘butter’). The larger amount of butter to oil gave us the stronger buttery taste we wanted.
Since I have always used ½ tsp. of salt for every ½ cup of corn, I added all salt at once, along with the corn and 4 Tbs. (1/4 cup) butter.
Melting and cooking the butter right in the pot was great. Having the extra oil in the pot - instead of pouring it over the finished popcorn - prevented the corn from burning – a great tip!
As the recipe said, I took the pot off the stove when the kernel pops were about 2 seconds apart - no burning or sticking! Another great tip!
We like to stir in nutritional yeast flakes (available at health-food stores) before eating. It gives a nice ‘cheesy’ flavor and is very nutritional.
I now have a new way to make popcorn! Thanks for sharing!
