    You’re supposed to shake it so it WON’T burn.

    After it’s popped, they can make this.

    Popcorn Soup

    Recipe is credited to: William W. Meixell

    1 egg
    1 cup flour
    5 cups milk (whole)
    1 large lump butter
    2 teaspoons chopped parsley
    2 hard-boiled egg yolks
    2 1/2 cups popcorn
    Dash of cayenne pepper

    Beat the egg, sift the flour, and blend together, chopping lightly with a spatula until batter flakes into Rivvels or lumps.
    Bring milk to a boil, add butter, and simmer.
    Drop Rivvels into the soup a few at a time, stirring until they are cooked – about ten minutes.
    Add parsley and grated egg yolks.
    Divide the popcorn into four large bowls, pour soup on top, sprinkle with pepper, (and salt if needed), serve at once. Serves 4.

    Jiffy Pop was store-bought. We just put 3 tablespoons of oil and a quarter cup of corn in a large pot. After the first two kernels popped, put on the lid and shake the pan until the popping stopped. That’s still how I make it and my grandkids and great-grandkids are amazed. Of course, I also make my ice cubes from scratch, which astounds them! (No icemaker on our fridge.)

    The world’s worst popcorn is made in one of those hot air poppers, it tastes like styrofoam unless you drench it with melted butter. I make mine the same way as Dani Rice.

    @Dani Rice, and it’s much healthier! So many chemicals in those microwave bags!

    I remember Jiffy Pop, it was fun to make. Another thing we enjoyed was Shake a Pudding, those were fun and delicious. Too bad it’s not around anymore.
