Have all sorts of poppers somewhere in the basement.

Personally prefer just to toss a bit of oil in a pot, add the corn, and cook it.

To me it is the easist way to go.

Me too.. I use the Whirley Pop which makes it even easier... It has a crank in the handle that you turn while it is cooking. The whole thing works just like a minature version of what you see in a movie theater or professional popcorn popper. It makes a lot of good popcorn fast, so it works well for making large batches of Caramel Corn.

I put 3 tablespoons of popcorn in a brown paper lunch bag and just fold over the top. It makes about 3-4 cups. I prefer to make caramel corn with plain popcorn. On my microwave, I have a popcorn setting and just push 'Regular' size.

It grosses Mr HB out but I like it for a snack when I'm watching my weight. He uses the packets with salt and extra butter.
