So while I do like popcorn poppers, I most often pop my own corn. People's ooking methods can vary, as do their results.
What are your favorite ways of making popcorn without the microwave and without the popper? What type of pan/pot/container do you use? What it made out of? What type of oil? Blazing high heat or more medium? Whose kernels? To shake thy container not shake thy container? When to remove from the heat? So on and so forth.
