also try a few drops of Worchestershire sauce in the popper for a unique flavor.

If you want popcorn to pop like mad, pour the kernels into a strainer, wash in cold water & strain well, then pour the kernels into the popper.

You can add an interesting flavor to popcorn if you add 1/2 peeled clove of garlic to the melted salted butter you serve on popcorn.

Use your butter flavored no stick cooking oil spray on popcorn. It is better than that stuff they say is for spraying the butter flavor on popcorn.

I admit I need "buttered" popcorn. However, I know that the butter isn't that good for us. So, I now do a little butter and a little olive oil together to pour over the popcorn and I can't tell the difference.

I make air popped popcorn in the microwave by putting 1/3 cup of popcorn in a lunch size paper bag, taping the top closed and nuking in the microwave like normal microwave popcorn.

This one's a bit messy, but delish. Using air popped popcorn, I pour on a few tablespoons of Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch/Carmel Ice Cream Topping and put it in the microwave for about 15 secs., then toss to coat all the kernals. It's my favorite dessert. However, you gotta eat it with a spoon; I think it's probably the wrong consistency to make into balls or bars.

If you use olive oil when popping your popcorn, it tastes great, you won't miss not slathering it in hot butter. You might also want to sprinkle on such toppings as parmesan cheese, a dab of taco seasoning, or ranch dressing mix. These are just a few of our favorites. So when 'Movie Night' rolls around, try something different.... snackwise.

I like to pop my pop corn using cold pressed coconut oil. This oil is good for you. It also gives the corn a nice flavor and you may not need any seasoning. I do like to take herbs and mix them with grated cheese then sprinkle sparingly. Can use thyme, garlic powder, italian seasoning, ect.

You can also flavour popcorn by sprinkling it with chicken flavour spices designed for chips (fries), or my favourite way is to melt butter, sugar and honey together (however you prefer it to taste) and pour it over to freshly popped corn. Keep a towel with you though, as your hands become very sticky and messy.

Love to make and eat popcorn? Tired of having a big bowl to wash? Instead of a bowl, I use a brown kraft grocery bag. Put the popped corn into a bag (will hold more than one batch), add salt, butter if you use it and shake. No big bowl to clean, keeps the corn warmer longer, and you can save leftovers and dispose of the bag when empty.

I sprinkle the powdered cheese from a box of macaroni and cheese on our popcorn. It's so good. I just use the macaroni for something else like macaroni salad.

Does anyone know the best way to store unpopped popcorn kernels? We never seem to be able to get more than halfway through a bag without them going "flat" and not popping as well.
Thanks for any suggestions :)

I only pop popcorn on the stove. I use no name popcorn. I use a dutch oven pot (one of the big ones with a lid), pour enough oil onto the bottom of the pot to evenly coat it, pour in kernels to coat the bottom, then slide them around to coat in oil. Cover, turn onto high, and rest the covered pot on the element until it starts rapidly popping.

Then I turn it down between med-high, hold it over the element (about 3 inches) and shake every ten seconds or so. A giant pot of movie popcorn in about 3 minutes and no annoying shaking sound on the element. Toss with salt. No need to add butter since the kernels are already coated in savory oil. MMMMMMMMMMM.
