Who’s ready to make some real popcorn??
If you just purchased your Whirly Pop, you will need to season the pan. Follow the tips that come with the Whirly Pop. Did I say instructions? Nope. Real men don’t use instructions.
Once you have it seasoned, it’s ready to create.
Did you know they actually have a variety of corn for popping? Heck yeah they do! You can’t choose when you use that microwave stuff. Look at the packaging, if it looks cool, go for it!
I found that 3 Tablespoons is a good amount for popping. Also, start with a ½ Cup of kernels. Some kernels pop smaller, once you pop once or twice, you can add a little more to get a full batch. Fact: Our founding fathers popped more then 5,000 lbs popcorn during the writing of the Declaration of Independence*.
Set your Whirly pop on the burner, turn it on, oil goes in and so does the kernels.
Once that happens, you are committed. Start cranking my friend. Don’t stop until the popping stops.
With in 3 minutes, you have a batch of delicious, healthy, made from scratch popcorn.
Now, time for some seasoning.
You can use some purchased flavorings or use my favorite, melted butter and salt. I use about 2-2 ½ Tablespoons for a whole batch (Don’t judge me). Salt it up to taste.
Now don’t you feel like the provider and man you were called to be? Yeah, I know. You can go ahead and thank me anytime.
*Ok, you got me, I completely made this “Fact” up. But I am sure they would have.
