microwave vs stovetop popcorn
Pokl Ping Started conversation Jan 21, 2001
Decided to try and pop some stove top popcorn (you know the sort you buy in a packet and pop in a saucepan with oil)
I usually buy microwave popcorn as its quick and I don't mess up in the kitchen.
The family consensus was.. I liked it, my 5 year old liked it, my 8 year olds reply was Yuk...Don't like it, not buttery enough and the Apprentice thought it was tasteless poop, like eating packing material. ( Mind you popped popcorn does make an excellent recycleable packing material if you pop it in an air popper)
Being a popcorn connoisseur, I grew up on regular popcorn and only discovered microwave popcorn in 1985 in the USA. I still like the old fashioned way of cooking it and microwave popcorn just doesn't cut it when making caramel corn.
