DIRECTIONS

  • Put the oil in a 4 quart heavy pot and let it heat over medium heat for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the kernels, turning with a spoon so that they are evenly covered with oil, then spread them in one layer on the bottom of the pot. (I just shake them around a bit).
  • Cover the pot, leaving a small space at the edge for escaping steam. As soon as the first kernel pops, move the pot gently and continuously back and forth over medium-high heat until the popping stops.
  • Turn into a warm bowl. Toss with melted butter, if desired, and salt to taste.
