My home entertainment system is complete (for now!), and the only motivation I now have to actually go to a movie theater is for the occasional taste of that wickedly good movie theater popcorn.
Microwave popcorn doesn’t cut it, not by a longshot. I have a old air popper that does a wonderful job at churning out white styrofoam, but certainly not at turning out delicious popcorn.
So what do I need? How do theaters pop their corn? In oil? (If so, what brand or type of oil?) Hot air? And the ‘butter’ topping; I am clever enough to know that it isn’t really butter (not pure butter, certainly), but not clever enough to know what is that heavenly topping made of. Any tips?
