    we put kernals in a paper bag and cook in the microwave just like microwave popcorn...then we put butter on afterwards....it is much cheaper then buying individual packs of overly buttered microwave popcorn...

    We also use kernals in ziplock baggies stored in the freezer for sore muscles...bumps and bruises etc.

    Hope this helps....

    I know when I was a kid we cooked popcorn in a sauce panwith lid....and just kept moving it like the jiffy pop....not as exciting cuz you couldnt see it though! LOL

    Just use a heavy pot with a lid. I don't measure, but pour oil to

    cover the bottom of the pot, add 3 kernals of corn and put over md

    high heat. When those kernals pop the oil is hot enough. Add a layer

    of kernals and the lid. Keep the pot moving to prevent scorching and

    you will know when it is finished. I use the same pot to melt a

    little butter to pour over the popcorn. Then you can add salt, season

    salt, hot pepper, whaterver.
