I made popcorn tonight on the stove top. My wife is in awe because:
1. She didn't know you could make popcorn on the stove top (she only knew of microwave and movie theatre machines)
2. She didn't know I could make it (despite it being very easy)
3. I've not made it for her once in the last decade (Oops)
Anyway, I highly recommend eating popcorn with chopsticks. I've been doing it since my teens and I can't praise it enough. You'll take your time and enjoy it more.
@tomasino Do you fancy coating your popcorn with any goo or spices? I am a toffee addict, so daren't make popcorn with it around.
@Shufei I use butter and salt, personally. We have a ranch shaker now and I'm sure my wife will want creative explorations, but I like it simple. I also prefer vanilla ice cream. So... 🤷♂️
@tomasino What’s a ranch shaker? Ranch sauce and Sri racha on it sounds like a good idea...
@Shufei I don't like it, personally
@tomasino Awwwwww! Oh, that is so cute! Awwwwww! It looks delicious to my tummy.
@tomasino No thanks, I will continue eating them one at a time by putting my tongue in the bowl so they stick to it
@tomasino we only do stovetop! And I have an amazing sriracha popcorn recipe that uses A LOT of butter!
@RaeYcrep well now you teased it... i gotta know the recipe!
@tomasino when I am not tucked in bed I shall pass it on!
Also highly recommend seasoning home made popcorn with salt, nutritional yeast, and paprika as a mix.
@RussSharek i have yeast for making bread. Like, active dry yeast. I'm guessing that's not the same?
I always make popcorn this way. Moved from US to Hungary, took me over a month to find where to buy it. Store clerks (all 20-somethings) kept looking at me weird, telling me they'd never heard of such a thing. "In a pot? On the stove? That actually works?"
Now, if I could just find a decent pizza here...
