i have been non scientifically experimenting with popcorn on the stove
i've tried local organic popping corn in an enamled cast iron with a matcing lid, an enameled cast iron with a class lid,
and i've tried grocery store brand popping cornall in an all glass pot and lid
the best one so far has been the organic popcorn in the enameled cast iron with the glass lid and the matching pots with the organic and grocery store popping corns tied for second
i think the enameld cast iron with the glas lid is the secret.. but maybe it's the different corns
what do you think? stove top corn poppers?
Momma got me a twirly bird thing. It's a dedicated popcorn pot with a lid with an attached metal brush that constantly moves the popcorn so it won't burn (hand cranked)
popcorn sucks but I have to eat it or else it'll hurt her feelings. Did an of your kernels burn?
about 8 burnt this time around in the all - glass pot
another 8 din't burn or pop either
the enameled iron with the glass lid a couple days ago worked best with only about 10 unpopped, unburnt kernals
>i did a science
Too many variables OP, and the only results you have are "I think this one turned out better than this one".
It's more about you watching it and controlling the heat than the pan used. It's just popcorn.
>it's material and quality of corn, not size of cooking vessel or temperature control
You can take an heirloom farm chicken and put it in a le creusant roasting pan, but if your pan is meant for quail, and your oven is set for 200, it's going to be shit regardless.
It's more like alcoholism, but the points about it being more about the cook than the cookware still stands.
I'd go for a light pan that I can move around and the glass lid so I can see what's going on inside.
the secret is a dedicated machine that does it for you.
2 tbsp popcorn cancer oil, kosher salt and finish with a little more oil. ez pz senpai.
>1/2 cup kernels
>coat bottom of pot in COCONUT OIL (high smoke point, tastes great)
>couple tsp of sugar
>tbsp of salt
I do it in a regular aluminum pot at work. Blast it with heat and then turn it to low when they start popping, shake the pot around constantly
