Before making this post a proper research have been made and carried out on how to prepare a professional popcorn from home easily.
Although making popcorn is a little bit tricky from the scratch. Most times you want to pop as many corns as possible, but you will end up getting them burnt at the bottom of the pan. Make sure the corn comes to an appropriate temperature before poping. This will enable you to get less unpop corn and fewer burnt corn.
Note:- Make sure the inside of the pot is completely dry before heating the oil in it, or else the oil will sputter.
SOME STEPS ON HOW TO PREPARE A PROFESSIONAL POP-CORN.
3 Tbsp coconut or peanut oil
1/3 cup of high quality popcorn kernels
1 Tbsp or more (to taste) of butter (optional)
Salt or Sugar to taste
Cook 10 minutes Yield: Makes 2 quarts, Make sure the inside of the pot is completely dry before
heating the oil in it, or else the oil will sputter.
Heat the oil in a 3-quart thick-bottomed saucepan
on medium high heat. If you are using coconut oil, allow all of
the solid oil to melt.
Put 3 or 4 corn into the oil. Wait for the corn to pop.
- When the corns pop, add the rest of the 1/3 cup of corns in an even layer.
3. Cover the pot, remove from heat and count 30 seconds. (Count out loud! It’s fun to do with kids.)
This method first heats the oil to the right temperature, then waiting 30 seconds brings all of the other corns to a near-popping temperature so that when they are put back on the heat, they all pop at about the same time.
4 Return the pan to the heat. The corn should begin popping soon, and all at once. Once the popping starts in earnest, gently shake the pan by moving it back and forth over the burner.
Tip: As the popcorn pops, try to keep the lid slightly ajar to let the steam from the popcorn release (the popcorn will be drier and crisper).
5 Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat, remove the lid, and dump the popcorn immediately into a wide bowl.
6 Melt butter in the empty hot pan: If you are adding butter, you can easily melt it by placing the butter in the now empty, but hot pan.
Tip: if you let the butter get just a little bit brown, it will add an even more intense, buttery flavor to the butter and to your popcorn.
7. Sprinkle the popcorn with salt to taste.
Fun toppings for the popcorn – Spanish smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, cayenne powder, chili pepper, curry powder, cumin, grated Parmesan cheese.
