I think I need to rethink my praises for the new popcorn recipe that I found HERE. It was so good that both my husband and I have been making snacks, and actual meals of popcorn. However, the results are showing on my cook-top. It is a mess – splattered with oil. And if that is not bad enough, yesterday Cliff decided to try popping the kernels using butter instead of oil. I know some people have written that it can be done, but believe me, he could not do it. Everything, including the popcorn turned out black. I went to the grocery today and purchased him some special butter flavored oil for popping.
Now I remember why we liked the microwave popcorn bags so well. No mess!
