Stove-top popcorn

For Friday the 13th, me and my best friend had a movie night and I tried out something I learned from Alton Brown of Good Eats. Popcorn! It was really easy and tasted AMAZING! So I had to share it with you all.

3 tbsp peanut oil
1/3 c popcorn kernels
a sprinkle of popcorn salt [put regular salt in a food processor and grind it for a while]

Put it all in a big metal bowl. Cover it with foil. Poke some holes w/a scissors to let steam out. Put it on the stove over medium heat. Wait till you hear the first pop. Then with a tongs or pot holder, shake the bowl until all the popping stops. Take it off the heat, uncover, add more salt if you want and melted butter if you want, and for a cheesy taste, sprinkle on some nutritional yeast. It's the best snack in the world!
