Campfire Popcorn

Basic Popcorn – makes about 6 cups
(You could alternatively use an air popper or use plain microwave popcorn. If you use microwave popcorn you may wish to reduce or eliminate the salt in the recipes below.)

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup popcorn kernels

Directions:

In a large pot with a tight-fitting lid, heat the vegetable oil with five kernels of corn over medium heat until the kernels pop.
Add the remaining corn kernels, cover the pot with lid, and shake the pot to coat the kernels with oil until you hear popping sounds.
Stop shaking, and listen carefully until the popping stops.
Being careful of hot steam, remove the cover and pour the popcorn into a large bowl.
Season as desired
