Popcorn before microwaves

How much fun is it to make popcorn on the stove, they way we used to do it?  Let me tell you, it’s a blast.  I found Jiffy Pop at the store the other day and wanted to show the girls how we used to make it.  No microwaves, just the stove or an air popper.   I let them all have a turn shaking the little pan back and forth until we started hearing the popping.  They were so happy to hear that it was actually working!  After all, Zoe told me the other day, until she learned about Edison, she thought we always had power on the earth.  (hee hee)

So, After about 5 minutes of vigorous shaking, the popping stopped, we took the pan off the heat and opened it up, the smell was delightful!  And the taste?  Oh, so good!!!  It was light, not too buttery and it didn’t have that plastic taste that microwave popcorn has.

If you can find Jiffy Pop in your area, I would highly recommend it!

    I have fond memories of Jiffy Pop, too. Have you tried the plain kernels in a brown bag in the microwave?? It’s amazing how well it works!

    Air poppers are great!
