Homemade Popcorn

We have lived many years without tasting the amazingness that is homemade popcorn.  Jenn was actually convinced she didn’t like popcorn.  Eventually, we got around to making some old fashioned popcorn, cooked on the stove and popped in a big ol pot.  Now even Jenn is hooked on it.  It’s all about having total control of the spices, herbs, and melty stuff you mix in.  When making it on the stove is so easy, economical, and delicious, we can’t understand why anyone would buy special gadgets or microwave bags.  Here is one of our favorite versions.  Popcorn, oh yea!  

1/8 cup corn oil – or enough to coat the bottom of the pot you are using
¼ cup popcorn kernels
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt – we like using Johnny’s seasoning salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add three kernels of popcorn and cover pot with lid.  Once those have popped, add the ¼ cup of kernels.  Shake the pot frequently.  Once the popping has stopped, turn off heat, add the butter, cheese, and seasonings, and stir well to mix.  That's it.
