Sweet and Salty Popcorn Recipes
Microwave Method: Place one-third cup of popcorn kernels in a brown lunch bag and microwave for 3.5 minutes, or use the popcorn button. I usually make two batches and snack on the leftovers.
Savory Popcorn Recipes
Stovetop Method: Pour 3 tablespoons of oil and 0.5-cup of popcorn kernels into a 4-quart pot. Cover pot with lid leaving it slightly ajar so the steam can escape. Cook popcorn over medium heat shaking the pan frequently. When popping slows, remove the the pot from heat.
Yellow popcorn kernels puff up larger and fluffier than white kernels which gives you more surface area for your flavorings, and they hold up better when coating with chocolate and caramel.
Yellow kernels are used by most movie theaters because they puff up big, are less crumbly, and have a buttery yellow hue.
Allow popcorn to cool completely and place in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for 3 to 5 days. Popcorn will become chewier the longer you store it.
