      I love this recipe! I have used it for maybe 15 years, and have never had it come out wrong. If you don't seal it up for storage, it tends to get sticky (which is how I like it)You DO have to make sure your microwave is big enough to handle the amoint of popcorn you're using. LOL. Thanks for posting this, its AWESOME!
