It's a movie break!
How to make popcorn:
Pour in just enough oil to cover the bottom of a heavy saucepan. Place three kernels of un-popped popcorn in the bottom of the pan. Cover the pan and heat the oil until you hear the three kernels pop.
Add as many kernels as will cover the bottom of the pan. Cover tightly.
Shake the pan over the fire or heating element so the kernels move. This prevents burning.
The kernels will start to pop at an amazing rate in a minute or so. When the popping sounds diminish to the point where you can only hear a couple of pops every 2-3 seconds, remove the pan from the heat.
Turn out your fresh popcorn into a bowl and salt lightly.
Why popcorn? Because it's movie time!
