I just made some popcorn on the stove top. I love it like that! I don't feel as "nourished" when I stick to the chemical laden popping bags that go in the microwave. Here is the method for popping old fashioned popcorn:
spread a single layer of kernels at the bottom of a pan. Put enough oil down to moisten each kernel. Set heat to medium and shake the pan every now and then to make sure the kernels don't stick. When it starts popping, after about a minute, turn off the heat as it continues to pop. Remove from pan when it is done popping.
Today I seasoned it with salt, seaweed, parmesan cheese, and onion powder. YUM.
