What's the best plain oil for popping corn?

Spaceechik | Nov 7, 2011 01:26 PM

I'm fairly broke all the time, and I make popcorn frequently, as it's very cheap, and is good for a snack while watching my detectives... ;)

I use pure olive oil, but I'm wondering if a more flavored oil might work as well? Also, I don't use much butter to dress the corn, just a little more of the olive oil flavored with a little pepper and or salt, sometimes with added southwest spice blends. Penzey's Arizona Dreaming, enough said!
