Making popcorn may seem a little obvious,pretty low on difficulty level but I learned a method on the stove top that is super easy and comes out consistently awesome so I thought Id lay it out.
Preheat stove top to medium heat setting.
Get a medium sized saucepan (about 2 quarts) my preference is stainless steel pan with copper bottom add a small amount of cooking oil (peanut oil works great but any other veggie oil is good) in pan, enough to cover the bottom. Add about 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels to oil. Roll kernels around until covered in oil. Put a bit of salt of the corn. Cover with lid put on stove.
You don’t need to do anything further but listen to corn popping. When the popping slows significantly remove from heat. Add salt or spices that you prefer and Enjoy!
