Popping popcorn on your stove isn’t hard, but I’ve always had to shake the pot pretty aggressively to get the kernels to pop even vaguely evenly. This seems like a better way.*
Also, word on the street is that the Portland, ME Whole Foods is going to be getting Fat Toad Farm goat’s milk caramel in stock maybe this week or next. If you were so inclined, you could drizzle your goat’s milk caramel over the popcorn.
I also like popcorn with parmesan, salt, and herbs.
* I refuse to buy a dedicated popcorn popper, and even though I love microwave popcorn in all its fake butter glory, microwave popcorn bags are lined with perfluorooctanoic acid, which is used to make Teflon pans and a possible carcinogen.
Psst! Here’s the trick to perfectly popped popcorn.
