Penelope asks: What’s your favorite popcorn topping?


I airpop popcorn (I use a microwave popper) then spray it w/butter flavored cooking spray then sprinkle w/salt or flavored salt. I pop and eat three tablespoons at a time--about 120 calories. It makes a huge amount for few calories and is a healthy, filling snack.

Butter with Salt and lots of Black Pepper

How about cooking it in a standard stove top popper and using olive oil? I use 1/2 cup of kernels to a tablespoon of oil.

When it's cooked, I add a light sprinkling of salt, mix well and serve myself and maybe my wife if she's interested. (She usually is.) but I feel it's not that much worse than hot air popcorn which has the same flavor as styrofoam, plus I don't use butter. I will say mine is light years better than microwave popcorn, which not only tastes odd, is greasy and stinks when it cooks.
