The Lost Art of Stove Top Popcorn

In this age of cell phones, computer and microwaves we've gotten too lazy for something as simple as stove top popcorn. Why bother why we can just put some in the microwave and walk away. Well it ends here! Trow out those boxes of over priced fluff, calories, and miscellaneous chemicals and get out the pot!
It's easier then you think, really. You made have heard horror stories of popcorn kernels of death trying to take one's eye out. Relax, that's all hype. Finally you're in control of what you put on it. It'll taste great, trust me. Take my hand and I'll guide you back to simple delicious healthy.
What you need:
A sauce pan with lid
3 tablespoons oil
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
Anything you want on it ex. salt, Parmesan cheese, cinnamon and sugar

How to:
Put oil into pot along with a few kernels. On stove, heat oil between high and medium. Once kernels pop add the rest and put the lid on. Move pot back and forth on burner to prevent burning. When you hear the popping stop turn off burner and remove from heat. Pour it into a bowl and add you favorite toppings.
That was painless, wasn't it? For an add bonus, try to find a farm that sells popcorn kernels. To my readers, I challenge you to make some stove top popcorn!
