Daddy's Popcorn Recipe
You will never go back microwave popcorn after trying this range-top recipe. It is made with oil, margarine, and seasoned salt.
Hi, I posted this recipe. I just wanted to let you know the ingredients I use because reviewer "Annie" gave me 1 star because she is having troubles getting it right. I start by buying the best (most expensive) yellow popcorn kernels. Cheaper brands don't pop well. I use Pure Wesson Vegetable Oil and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter to cook them in. Then I top it off with Lawry's Seasoned Salt (remember not to add too much). I hope that helps Annie. When you get it to work I hope you come back and update your review. Thank you and enjoy!

I am a seasoned cook but popcorn is the one thing I have never tried making on the stove. I had a bag of kernals and decided to try it. Your recipe is so much better than whats on the back of the kernal bag. It turned out perfect!!!! Instead of seasoned salt if you add a little salt and sugar it turns out just like kettle corn! Wonderful, economical, easy and just plain great!!!!!!!!
Delicious! I just used the store brand yellow popping corn, canola oil and butter. It came out delicious and basically all but 8 kernels popped! I will definitely be using this recipe again. I want to experiment with different flavoring options. It was easy!
Just ran across this recipe and it brought tears to my eyes....this is exactly how my daddy popped his popcorn and even put in the paper sack with the top cut off. I lost my dad when i was 16. He taught me to make popcorn this way..Thank you for bringing back such memories. I am going to go out and get some popcorn today..
I made this popcorn using this recipe and it was the best popcorn i have ever had. Good recipe Mr.G
This was absolutely delicious! The oil and butter combine to make a perfectly seasoned snack without being greasy. We used to make air-popped popcorn and drizzle on melted butter -- tasty but greasy. Then we switched to microwave popcorn -- easy and quick, but it always has a weird, artificial taste (you know what I'm talking about -- that strange coating it leaves in your mouth). Then I decided to get back to nature and found this simple recipe. Being raised in the days of Jiffy Pop and progressing to microvwave popcorn, I never knew it was so simple to just make popcorn in an ordinary pot. This was so easy --popped up very fast (I just listened to the pops and took it off the stove when popping slowed), very tasty, and virtually no unpopped kernels. If no brown paper bag is handy, no problem. Just put the popcorn in a bowl lined with a paper towel. I'm going to experiment with using smaller amounts of oil and butter to see how lean I can make this without sacrificing taste. I really like the flavor and
