favorite thing:
stovetop popcorn
3tbl olive oil
1/3-1/2c popcorn kernels
natures seasoning/seasoning salt

in heavy bottom stock pot, heat 3 tbl of olive oil on medium heat with 2 or 3 popcorn kernels in there. put the lid on, but tilt it so it is vented and allows the steam out.
when you hear the popcorn pop, the oil is ready. pour in the rest of the kernels, put cover on fully, and shake pan around to coat the popcorn kernels with oil and evenly distribute them. return to the heat, and vent/tilt the lid again.
wait for your popcorn to pop, removing from heat when it slows down popping.
pour into a big bowl, shake on some natures seasoning, toss, eat and enjoy!
here is my designated popcorn pot!
my popcorn pot
not pretty, but well loved and works great!
