• Sounds indeed, like a perfect bowl of popcorn, Susan.

    You have been missed online. Here’s hoping the reminder of 2017 will bring you much health and happiness.

  • I recently rejoined the ranks of non microwave popcorn when our local farm store sold whole ears of popcorn this fall. Talk about fresh!! Wonderful. Don’t think I’ll ever go back to microwave now. So it’s good to be reminded that I can buy it loose from the store too. Good tip about the steam.

  • I love popcorn (and Netflix). And the pot method makes the best popcorn. I did not know the trick about leaving the lid slightly ajar. I will remember that. I’ve recently bought Whirly Pop pot to use on the stovetop and am having good results with it. It does have vents to let the steam out. I’ve also been using coconut oil instead of canola oil and like the flavour.

  • And I bet it smells a lot better than when you make it in the microwave.

  • I love popcorn, my dad hates popcorn, the smell drives him mad he dislikes it that much, Tim doesn’t like it much either strange men

  • There’s nothing like good, natural popcorn! I love the idea of the Himalayan salt too.

    I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t know you could pop popcorn without a microwave or a popper dedicated to the cause! We’ve been addicted to Paul Newman’s, but with his price, I’m totally willing to give this version a try. Sometimes, we sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. And I am oil picking. We use San Giuliano extra virgin olive oil. oh yum!
