I loves me some popcorn. Often those tasty morsels of corny goodness have been my dinner. However I do not partake of the microwave kind. I like to make mine the old fashion way, in a pan in hot oil on the stove. I pretty much have this process down to a science to the point where I have very few ‘old maids’ and lots and lots and usually way to much popped corn. I also top this corn with real melted butter and a bit of kosher salt. It’s down right yummy, in fact it’s been called the ‘best in the land’ by sweet step daughter. My drink of choice with popcorn has changed over the years, but for the past several years it has been orange juice. As the popcorn is heating up and popping I prepare a can of concentrated orange juice, no pulp thankyouverymuch. I prepare this orange beverage as a not-too-warm-not-cold-at-all tasty treat. Like anything really flavorful this orange juice is at room temp, in order to bring out the strong orange flavor ya see.
I have an extra large ginormous tupperware bowl as my designated popcorn bowl, which has never failed to hold all the popcorn that I make, even though I ALWAYS over produce. Kitchen towels are a necessity when eating this popcorn because of the butter and you really can’t do anything else but watch TV or stuff your face. Your hands would be just a bit greasy. …so there you have it, my popcorn prefrences, which was brought about by this article. When in a pinch I will partake, but I don’t think so much anymore.
