failsafe popcorn recipes?

Anyone got a good T&T recipe for popcorn? I usually only cook about 25g (1 oz) at a time in a hot air blower, but its kind of boring and DS(12) wants something more tasty

TIA

We use an air-popper. While the popcorn's popping, DH melts a little salted butter in the microwave. When the popcorn's done, he transfers it in small amounts to another bowl and swirls in the melted butter, then shakes a seasoning** on it. He does this in layers until the popcorn (from the first bowl) or melted butter (in a glass measuring cup) runs out. He then gives the big bowl a shake or lightly tosses the seasoned popcorn with his (clean!) hand.

**We purchase the Land o' Lakes flavorings (at Target), which come in White Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, Nacho Cheese, and Sour Cream & Onion, but grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder, or smoked paprika might work well.

That sounds easy enough I don't know if we can get those seasonings over here, I'll have to check. Otherwise I have parmesan and paprika in the house We've got a holiday weekend coming up and its going to be cold and rainy the WHOLE time

Sorry for my late response. I love this recipe:

Kettle Corn

1/2c popcorn kernels
1/3c oil (I use vegetable oil)
1/4c sugar

Heat oil to popping temp (put 1 kernel in with the oil and when it pops, the oil is ready), then add the popcorn

Give the pan an occasional shake.

When the kernels start to pop, quickly add the sugar and stir to melt in with the oil and popcorn.

Then cover and continue to occasionally shake til the popping stops.

Pour into heat proof container, salt, stir then salt again. Let it cool (the melted sugar is really hot and will stick to your fingers!)

Stir again to break up large pieces.

If stored in an airtight container or ziplock bags, it will keep for several days.

Tips: It really helps with this recipe if you have the ingredients measured out and ready to go, because you need to move quickly. If you have your stove heat too high, it's easy to burn the popcorn and or sugar. I find that my lighter weight pan works better than my heavy pan. I also use a long handled wooden spoon for stirring and use the pan's lid as a shield while stirring in the sugar. Hope you enjoy!

My popcorn recipe is not the healthiest, but it is delicious.

I cook it one the stove in coconut oil, add 1/2 stick of butter when popped and sprinkle in salt. My kids love it.
