Movie popcorn for pennies
Popcorn is serious business at my house. It has been ever since a dear friend gave us a “Whirley Pop” as a wedding gift. It’s a pot you put on the stove with oil and popcorn and it has a turn crank that keeps the kernels moving until they pop. The whole process takes three minutes, and it blows away the microwave kind. I can’t even eat that stuff anymore.
Everyone in the family likes it a different way. My son likes to dip each kernel into melted fake butter. My husband puts Mrs. Dash and Spice rub mixes on his. I like to add a tablespoon of sugar to the pot while it’s cooking for a kettle-corn flavor.
But all three of us like movie popcorn. With the Oscars on Sunday, it’s a good week to perfect a homemade version. from the Food Network. Even better than the flavor: You don’t have to sell your car to pay for it.
