I'm with KMO and make popcorn in a saucepan. The heavier the pan the better although I have light pans for camping; the heavy ones are at home. I LOVE Jiffy Pop, probably because I have fond memories of making it at home as a kid. If I recall correctly, they had really fun TV commercials too. Now I only use Jiffy Pop while camping and recycle the aluminum when the popcorn's all done. There's no pan to wash and it's just fun to see the top grow! It's a bit hard to find in our local grocery stores and you want to find a fresh package as the out of date ones can taste bad. When I see Jiffy Pop in our local store it is in the summertime and I get one or two to cook while camping. I usually cook Jiffy Pop on the Coleman or trailer gas stove. When we cook it on the firegrate we get lots of burned kernels. That may make for a great camping experience for some but not for me.

As most folks know at our Midwest gatherings [scrambled eggs] almost every evening I make around a bushel of corn. i grow my own corn, a special kind [South american mushroom].It is a non altered corn. I use colored canola oil ,equal amounts of corn and oil with level teaspoon fine pop corn salt I have several donated poppers. our friends pick these up for me.I use a small camp stove it must be good as it all disappears.

Can't remember when I had Jiffy pop last. Have one hanging in the garage, when someone asks what it's for I tell them it's my fire alarm. Yup, I'm a redneck

We are lucky enough to enjoy camping carmel/kettle corn with our friends ,(thanks Chuck and Vicki), who make it in a Whirley Pop style popper on a propane burner when we camp together. So yummy!

Jiffy pop for the win. 1 jiffy pop per night is standard operating procedure for my family whilst camping. The toddlers get a kick out if the process with all the shaking and popping and all.


I've also been making popcorn with my camp stove on backpacking trips for years. I made an instructional video some time ago. Enjoy.

While Jiffy Pop is fun to watch, for me the taste is too much like cardboard. Even less a fan of microwave stuff at all either, WAY too much salt and fake butter....gross.

Any method that uses fresh raw kernels, with just a bit of oil needed to pop, wins out in my books. This way you get to flavour to suit your tastes, PLUS you get to use REAL BUTTER, not the refined vegetable oil substitutes.

My name is Jim, and I am a popcorn snob.

Okay, so what do you put on your popcorn once you have popped it? Back in my hippie days, hard to believe this but the fashion was kelp powder, brewer's yeast, and tamari (soy sauce). It wasn't as bad as it sounds. The soy sauce made it soggy though.

I have retained a fondness for brewers yeast (Red Star, a tasty flake style), but have reverted otherwise to simple organic butter and sea salt.

I also love popcorn balls but I never get the caramel right. Not a candy maker I guess.

Brewer's Yeast is a great topping for popcorn. I also have added a sprinkle of cayenne powder too, just enough to give it a bit of a kick. We picked up a few toppings sold at a farmer's market once that were quite good. Low on calories, and high on taste. Not sure if I could find them again.

Most of the time though, I just lightly salt and butter it.

Not a fan of microwave at all, but willing to give Jiffy Pop a try. It's been years. My favorite popcorn maker is an Aladdin No-Shake Corn Popper. Basically an aluminum pot with a lid that incorporates a thick wire loop. The loop goes down to the bottom of the pot. You twist the top around to agitate the kernels that are cooking in oil or butter. When I was a kid in the 50's my grandmother used it. I told her how good her popcorn tasted, and she gave me the popper after we got married. Not as good as Grandma's, but still better than any other method I've tried. I think even Jim would approve!

LOL....But first I would have to try it. Maybe next time either of us are in the others territory, okay?

I did check out that popper online, it seems like a great unit.

Been using the same flat bottom pan with a slide over screen on a long handle for nearly 30 years. If one masters the Zen of not burning the stuff it works great.

Butter, salt, seasoning salt, and natures seasons. Grated parmesan cheese for a gourmet touch. But my favorite is just butter and salt. Wife does not want butter, dog and myself are in the butter camp. The dog sort of seems to favor the cheese version most of all.
