October is Popcorn Poppin’ Month

October is national Popcorn Poppin’ Month.  In the Allen household, every Sunday is popcorn night.  I make popcorn the old fashioned way, popped in oil on the stove.  Most folks make their popcorn in the microwave these days.  Air poppers keep the calories low for this tasty, whole-grain snack. 

But I love popcorn made the way I grew up popping it. I use my mom’s old pressure cooker as my popping pot.  It’s heavy and doesn’t burn the popcorn at high temperatures.  I use olive oil to pop my corn, as it’s a little more heart-healthy.  I coat the bottom of the pot with oil and let it get hot before adding the popping corn.  Once I put in the corn kernels, it’s time to shake the pot over the flames and make the perfect batch of popcorn goodness.  When it’s done, I pour it into a large bowl and add generous amounts of kosher salt.

 Then it’s time to kick back on the sofa with my wife and chow down while watching some shows that we DVR’ed during the week. 

 Popcorn is a delicious and wholesome snack.  When you make it “old-school” like I do, it only costs pennies for a big bowl.  It’s hard to beat something that tastes great, is fun to make and doesn’t cost very much. 

Since most popcorn is grown in the Midwest, you’re also supporting the local economy by enjoying it.

So pop up a batch and enjoy a ballgame or your favorite show!
