Old-Fashioned Popcorn and Memories

Okay, so have you ever had old-fashioned popcorn on the stove? I'm an eighties kid and remember when it was 'before microwave popcorn'. Mom used to have, what was it? Jiffy Pop? Which had foil that expanded on the top? No. That's not what I'm talking about here. I mean, just some oil, kernels, salt and butter cooked on the stove-top. For me, it brings back some fond memories of sitting in front of the tv with my family (yes, my family only had one back then so we had to share, and heaven forbid we all spend time together) and watching Star Trek: The Next Generation...HA! My dad is a total Sci-Fi dork...Love ya, Daddy ;-) Actually, I liked it too, had no choice really but I honestly did like it. I can quote the opening segment to this day... Anyway...I'm getting off on a tangent...What was I talking about? Oh yeah, family memories. SO, this is something we love to do with our girls. We pick a movie and I pop some old-fashioned popcorn and we spend time with the lights off like we are at the theater. They LOVE it! and so do I. My mom taught me this method which she learned from my Gramps (who still pops it this way every night, as far as I know). What's great too is you don't get any of the garbage that comes in a bag with all the preservatives and processed butter flavoring. Just some salt is actually quite nice, so feel free to skip the butter if you prefer. It tastes so fresh and YAY! It's not a lot of calories! SOo without further goes nothin!

Vegetable Oil
popcorn kernels

So all you need are some popcorn kernels found where popcorn is sold in your grocery store. I get it cheap at Walmart for less than two bucks for a big bag. Which, by the way, can last at least 6 months if not longer since you don't use many kernels at a time.

First, pour maybe a tablespoon of oil in a pot just to coat the bottom. This makes enough for my family to each have a serving. Use a bigger pot if you want more. (Note: Use a bigger pot, don't just add more kernels, it'll overflow the pot and lift the lid. I've found that if you fill the bottom with kernels, usually whatever pot you use will be full of popcorn when finished) Turn the heat to medium high.

Next, sprinkle handfuls of kernels so that they are one kernel deep in the oil. Put a lid on and wait. Don't go too far! You'll me. When the popcorn begins to pop. Shake the pot back and forth until the kernels stop popping. Pour in a large bowl and sprinkle with some salt. Toss some butter in the hot pot and remove from the burner so the butter doesn't burn. Pour melted butter on the popped corn and go make some family memories!

Check out my video below for a short video demonstrating the process.


  1. We've recently started popping all our popcorn like this. It's SOOO good, and so much easier than I thought it would be. It's actually become a little bit of an addiction!

    My husband likes to add just a little bit of sugar to the salt/butter mix for a homemade kettle corn taste too.

  2. Ginger, thanks for stopping by! The sugar sounds awesome! I may have to try it, thanks!
