What is the secret to popping *really* fluffy popcorn?
Am interested in hearing whatever way you have experienced the best results
- Air Popper
I think it's the type of corn that affects it the most. There aren't too many brands available (that are not microwave in a bag) where I live. I like Orville Redenbacker sp?, the best. I just follow the directions on the jar. I use a heavy cast iron dutch oven with great results. I usually don't even need to shake the pan!
It's just as easy as microwave popcorn without all of those additives.
I've never used an air popper. I, too, would love to here others experiences.
I only make popcorn on the stove, no special equipment, no oil, using generic brand popcorn. Weezy is right: the trick is to make sure there's no condensation.
I put the kernels in a saucepan on low heat and crack the lid to let the steam escape and the kernels brown, then close the lid once they start popping. It takes a bit of time and patience but my popcorn is always fluffy.
