This might seem like an incredibly simple thing to make but really good popcorn can be quite difficult to make. As a child, popcorn was a special treat that I had when my brother and I went to stay with my grandparents overnight. Gram would always make dinner for us. But after dinner Pa would make popcorn for us. What made Pa’s popcorn special? Besides there fact that it was made with love, popcorn at my grandparents house was made old school – popped in a pot with a small amount oil.
This is something tasty and simple which is fairly easy to make. I find it much nicer than microwave popcorn or air popped popcorn with an excessive amount of butter. The interesting thing is that making popcorn this way is incredibly simple, inexpensive and fairly healthy. So it makes for a really good quick snack. Sometimes the simplest things are the best things.
