1/3 cup popping corn

1/2 cup vegetable oil



  1. Combine oil and popcorn in pot with tight-fitting lid.
  2. Heat over high heat.
  3. Once popped corn has filled pot 3/4 of the way, shake the pot gently to loosen any kernels on bottom. (It also helps to get an idea of how many kernels are left.)
  4. Once the pot has filled up and the popping of kernels has slowed down, turn off heat and allow popping to stop. 
  5. Pour into bowl (or bowls) and season to your preference.
