POPCORN

How the hell do you make your own popcorn at home without buying the prepacked microwave stuff?

>add oil to pan
>add corn specifically sold as "for popcorn"
>Some of them pop, fall down on the oil and burn while the others take forever to pop
>in the end left with burnt popcorn and loads of unpopped corn
>even though there was only a single layer of corn
I'm losing my mind

    I use a light bottom 12 in deep pan with a lid.
    My trick is soybean oil, wait till it gets hot and drop a few kernels in, when they pop drop all kernels in, then shake it around on the heating element. The popped kernels will go to the top while unpopped ones stay on the heat. Move the pan around like a random orbital sander.. never fails

        It's silicone. I have one, it works but some kernels remain unpopped, maybe my popcorn sucks.

    Stir popper.

    2TBPs of coconut oil, the best is that yellow stuff with beta carotene made for popcorn.
    1/2 cup of kernels
    1 tsp of Flavacol

    Wala, good as theatre. Its the same shit they use… except they prolly use canola oil so really this is better.

    You can get this all on Amazon cheap.

          Princess is not a Chinese brand
          Also "just keep shaking the pan" doesn't work for me
          I have induction, if I lift the pan the heat is gone
          If this machine works like the user video in the Amazon reviews it'll be great

            Its a fan and a heating element. You're going to end up with dry air popped corn that turns soggy the second you put butter on it.

            If you can’t keep the pan in constant motion, you won’t be able to make popcorn without burning it. Get an air popper. They’re cheap as frick and make perfect popcorn.

    Get a popcorn maker.
    Microwave butter. Add salt to butter as much as can disolve. Or flavacol if you can buy it. Spoon over popcorn.

      Melt the butter in a pot then add the popcorn. Season with salt then put the lid on and shake.

    Deep stockpot, kernels, enough oil to almost coat the kernels(they don't need to be swimming). Make a lid for your pot with a sheet of foil and stab the frick out of it to vent steam. Congrats you just made your own jiffy pop. Shake rattle and roll that pot once the kernels start making noise so nothing burns. Protip: save the lid for next time

    Skill issue, so I will explain it as if I am explaining it to a moronic child.
    Use a lidded saucepan with a handle. Use a neutral oil with a high smoke point, like peanut oil. Only add enough oil to evenly coat the bottom of the pan. Only add enough popcorn kernels to evenly coat the bottom of the pan. Make sure the burner is on as high a heat as possible. As soon as you first hear a kernel pop, keep the pan moving. Do not let it sit for even a second. Constantly slide the pan back and forth across the burner, and every few seconds give it a tossing motion as if you're flipping a coin. Pull it off the burner as soon as you stop hearing popping.
    If you manage to frick this up, you are dumber than all children and most dogs.

    You just reminded me that I fricking forgot to buy more when we last went shopping. Frick.

    I do either one of two things:
    1) microwave lunchsack popping or
    B) clip a campfire pan handle into a large metal mixing bowl with oil and cover it in foil so the popping kernels don't shoot out
    For the second method, I just shake near continuously once the popping starts and stop when I hear no more popping. I have never had a single unpopped or burnt kernel. Not. A. One. And we eat a fricktonne of popcorn in this house.
    Fun fact: if you soak the kernels in water first, they pop into near perfect globes. : )

      I tried your popcorn trick and then nothing happened. I soaked the kernels for maybe 10 minutes. if anything they're just smaller than usual but they're certainly not round. Am I supposed to soak them for a lot longer?

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        No, I soak much longer than that. I might leave some overnight or put some in the morning for that evening. But it's weird that they popped smaller.

    You need to remember some things are NOT really well done at home. This is why popcorn is sold at movie theaters and other venues because people really dont ever cook it themselves as its too much trouble

    I use one like this. It has the same agitators to move the seeds around that a theater make has. I don't use oil cooking it because then it would need to be cleaned every time. Don't fill the base or it will make more popcorn than fits in the bowl. Don't put butter in the top to drip down, it will burn. Just melt it seperately.

      It’s still going to burn unless you constantly shake the pot around. A tall pot is not a magic popcorn tube.

    Get an air popper. You can dump some melted butter on it afterward if you want to. Or whatever other flavorings you want.

    just let the oil heat up, drop some kernels into the pan and when those pop, add the rest of the popcorn.

    You can also just put a closed brown paper lunch bag (or a pouch made with parchment paper) in the microwave and the popcorn will also cook just fine. If you want to use oil in the bag just put it on a plate.

    4 to 6 Quart pot with lid

    enough tinfoil to cover the pot

    heat on medium low
    Add 1 to 2 TBL of ghee and wait for it to melt

    add 1/4 to 1/3rd of popcorn--not all types pop the same volume.

    Make sure the popcorn is flat to the bottom of the pot--If you can't get all the kernels uniformly touching the bottom you have too many kernels

    Cover the top with Tin foil
    Put the lid on top of the Tin foil

    Turn up to medium and wait until the pot is physically warm 3/4rs of the way to the top on the sides (just touch it near the top, if it's getting too hot to touch you're ready for the next step)

    Turn to medium-high and leave it the frick alone until it stops popping. Don't shake it--that's a different method.

    dump everything into a bowl and add whatever you like.

    I like coconut oil/butter mixed for a binder and nutritional yeast. I like to add powdered cheese from time to time as well... always with a little salt.

    Yes there will be some unpopped kernels. Better to waste those than burn your whole bag. You can also add butter or ghee into the bag before microwaving. Yes this will make the bag greasy so you should put the bag on a plate before microwaving
