O yeah. I forgot that trick . Brown paper bag and popcorn, nothing else in there. I can't handle microwave pc. Used to have that smell ALL day long wafting from the break room at the cubicle farm.

Definitely Orville Redenbacher yellow corn (stovetop, not microwave). I used to use Jolly Time, but once I tried Orville's, there was no turning back - it's so superior.

OR for me too. Although I hate to break the news to ya all folks, but my people taught your people all about corn. But they never told me about the paper bag. Oh yeah. They didn't have microwaves back then. They weren't even in the majority of homes when my kids were growing up.

I used to use my big stock pot, make a pot of popcorn in oil on top of the stove, melt butter and I had that popcorn salt. Put it all in a big paper bag, pour the butter over it, and shake like mad. While the kids were sitting outside eating it, I would make a couple of big pitchers of ice tea. They thought they were really getting a big treat. Plastic glasses galore! A large grocery bag holds a lot of popcorn. Enough for the neighbor's kids. And what fell on the ground made the birds very happy.

Yes. Our tribe is located in Paris and Old Town Maine. Passamaquoddy. I think I have it spelled right. I can never remember it. My father was Native American and my mother English.

My grandfather first immigrated to N.S. in Canada looking for work. Then he migrated to Massachusetts. Anytime someone asks me my nationality, I always state the Indian first. Unfortunately the only Indian thing I have ever done is open a can of corn. I seem to be the only one in the family that embraces my heritage. My niece has photos from the turn of the century of our ancestors. She is the keeper of the family records. A distant relative started a family tree and was able to trace the tribe back to the early 1700's.

I have an air popper and one of those stovetop ones. I prefer stovetop. I too use coconut oil in the pan, the brown paper bag, Kosher salt, curry powder, butter, and then I put Frank's Hot Sauce on top when eating it.

My dad grew up in Old Town Maine, and I grew up not far from there. The Penobscot river had a few large islands, Indian Island (the Penobscot Indian reservation) French island (the French settlement where my dad grew up) and Marsh Island where everyone else lived!
