  • Stove!

    1/2 butter, 1/2 evoo. Get it screaming hot, toss in the corn and use a spatter guard to keep it from exploding all over, keep it moving so it doesn't burn.... om nom nom nom!

  • stove here!
    i coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil, put in one kernal, turn up the heat...when that kernal pops, i put one layer of kernals in the pot, and put the lid on.

  • Stove top!! So good! It's my favorite food. I prefer Canola oil, but I've heard corn oil is also delicious. I do like butter... but I figure Canola is healthier, lol.

  • stove top! I pop it in oil & then add melted butter when it is done. I pop mine over medium heat. Use a pan w/ a lid but let the lid be crooked a bit so that the steam can escape.
