The Academy Awards came and went but yet the popcorn-maker is still at work-satisfying each movie-goers mesmerizing experience in the world of cinema stories. You pay more for a Cherry Coke and Jumbo sized popcorn than a sit-down dinner at the show, and somehow a movie screening isn’t the same without this cinema snack.
My pops, a self-proclaimed super-taster, a.k.a Bones, loves
a.) Great Films
b.) Excellent Popcorn.
Luckily, we growing up with a Homemade Popcorn aficionado, we never knew what a bottom pile of unpopped kernels or burnt popcorn ever tasted like. Renting videos from the local Video Adventure film rental meant that Dad was in the kitchen later systematically pouring kernels into a deep pot, preparing for the home movie experience. Today, I asked for his popcorn-making method because no movie would win an Oscar without popcorn made like this:
First: Prepare your counters and kitchen stove top
When kernels appear to have all popped; wait for 5-10 seconds of silence and turn off heat. Lift cover slowly.
Pour all into bowl. Lightly salt with popcorn salt. Microwave butter for 20-30 seconds and pour.
