popcorn in a red pot

Some of you, my age or a little bit older may recall the days when no microwave was present.we used to pop popcorn on the stove top.

It was a fun activity and popcorn tasted so much better! No weird buttery smell from the microwave, but instead, warm, nutty and delicious popcorn, that was gone in no time. 

Stove top popcorn is easy and takes 5-10 minutes to make with just a couple of ingredients – oil and corn kernels. 

I haven’t used a microwave in years (just a personal choice), but even when I had one, I always used to pop my popcorn in a pot on the stove. No air popped popcorn and no need to purchase a popcorn maker.
