Did any of you eat Jiffy Pop Popcorn when you were younger? I remember anticipating the popping sound and waiting impatiently for that silver dome to grow. I actually bought one not too long ago but it was a total disappointment. Do kernels go bad? The silver ball never expanded and the kernels were burnt. Anyway, I love popcorn and one night I had a craving for it. We decided to pop our own kernels instead of throwing in microwaveable popcorn. I actually have a bag of kernels that have been kicking around for a while. I grabbed some oil, a pan and did a “make the popcorn pop dance” for Teagan. Her eyes grew large when the popping began. A few minutes later we had some nice fluffy popcorn. I let her throw in some Earth Balance Buttery Spread (!) and we filled our popcorn containers. YUMMY! What are some things you like to top your popcorn with? Let us know in the comments section.
Fun Quote: “Every once in a while, someone will mail me a single popcorn kernel that didn’t pop. I’ll get out a fresh kernel, tape it to a piece of paper and mail it back to them.” Orville Redenbacher
