My neighbors taught me to add a little Mongolian Fire Oil into the veg oil before I pop it, and that's good.

But a foodie friend of mine taught me to pop it as usual, then pour a little BACON GREASE over it (how's that, my Bacon-Loving Friends?)

It's a beautiful thing!

Whirley Pop popcorn popper that is used on the stove
We resurrected something from the basement, not sure if that's what it is. Heavy duty steel, with a hand crank shaft. It makes the best popcorn! I'll try adding the salt to the oil when popping. I do love my salt.

Sounds like an older version of the Whirley Popper. And, yes, the best popcorn ever.

Cook the popcorn in butter and then pour icing sugar over it while warm. Yummy!

I like Kettle Corn but haven't had it in years. Used to make a version of it for my children when they were young. Good stuff.

We gave up on nuked popcorn.... made some the old fashioned way with oil on the stove for caramel corn, and remembered how much better it was!
I LOVE butter and salt on it, but I've learned to live without the butter. Just salt. Butter maybe once a month or less. Once in awhile DH makes one of the treats his Dad used to and dumps a bag of M&M's in after its salted. I dont know why, the kids just pick out the chocolate!!
