Well, I got the skinny and tried my hand at it that very night. Of course, I was texting with her while I was in the process and before I knew it, I had burnt the first bath and my kitchen stunk to high heaven. Let me be the first to tell y’all that texting and popping just don’t mix. Not to be outdone, I put down the phone and started over. The results were divine. And totally worth the stench in my house for the next two days. (I do not exaggerate.)
The B Family’s Stovetop Popcorn
1. Put 3T. olive oil + 3 single popcorn kernels in a large pot on medium heat on the stove with the top on.
2. When those kernels pop, you’ll know the oil is ready. At that time, add 1/2 c popcorn kernels and cover. Once the popcorn starts popping, you will want to shake the pot around on your stove to keep the popcorn on the bottom from burning.
3. Just as soon as the popping stops/slows, immediately remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl. Salt (liberally), pepper and toss with dried rosemary. YUM!!!
I have since made countless pots of this stovetop popcorn, most of which occurred last week during snow no-show 2015 while we spent three entire days lounging around the house! I even tried a version where I drizzled with melted butter and truffle oil… oh MY!
Happy snacking, y’all!!
