Recipe: Stove-Top Popcorn
In the age of single-use, disposable containers, the popcorn bag may be a prime example of something we’ve become so used to that we’ve forgotten it’s not even necessary. Here’s a throwback: stove-top popcorn! Ever tried it? It is practically as quick as the microwave variety, and has the great advantage that you can flavor it however you want.
To make your own stove-top (bag-free!) popcorn, you’ll need a large pan (at least 3 quarts) with a lid, canola, vegetable or olive oil, and anything else that you think would be delicious on popcorn. Cooking On the Side has a great page with several recipes that can help get you started. From classic plain popcorn, to caramel corn and kettle corn, they’ll walk you through exactly how to do it. Happy poppin’!
