- Heat it on low medium heat.
- Add the corn kernels and cover the pot securely.
- Gently shake the pan by moving it back & forth over the burner.
- After a few minutes, the kernels will begin popping.
- Once the popping starts in earnest, it is important to lift and shake the pot occasionally.
- This helps distribute the kernels in the oil and lessens the chance of the popcorn burning while it pops.
- Once in a while try to keep the lid slightly ajar away from the face for a second only just to let the steam from the popcorn release so that the popcorns are crispy.
- Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat.
- Transfer immediately to a dry bowl.
