small pot with some cooking oil or butter in the bottom. heat the oil / butter and put some popcorn kernels in and cover.
then continue to move the covered pot back and forth on the low heat flame and wait for a few seconds and the magic will happen.

note to self - make sure the pot is big enough to handle the popcorn once popped.

Ok, here it is. Take the largest pan you have with a cover. Like the one mom use to make a pot roast in. Turn on the gas, put the pan uncovered on the burner. put a FEW pop corn kernels in the pan. add veg oil or butter just enough to cover the kernels. wait until the corn pops then add just enough corn to cover the bottom of the pan. cover the pan. once the corn starts to pop again keep shaking the pan until corn discontinues poping. Pour out into large serving dish. Enjoy. I made popcorn like this for over 15 years in a theatre never had any complaints.

we use organically grown kernels because any product that can sit in a shelf like military rations for years and still be serviceable or safe to eat.... well generally isn' going into my grand kids stomachs.
