How to Make the World's Best Popcorn

by Landon Ferster


  • 1/2 cup popcorn Kernels
  • 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Seasoning salt
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Combine oil and butter in pot. Turn stove on and allow butter to completely melt. (I usually use heat setting 6) :)

    Step 2

    Put kernels in. Oil should barely cover kernels. You may choose to add seasoning salt now or at the end. I usually add it when the kernels are cooking, makes a better flavor. Cover pot with lid.

    Step 3

    The popcorn will pop within the first 5 or 6 minutes. There is no need to shake the pot, once the kernels begin popping, that will prevent them from burning.

    Step 4

    When you no longer hear popping, empty popcorn into bowl immediately to prevent burning

    Step 5

    Enjoy! If you enjoy a more salty-buttery taste, you can substitute margarine for butter.
