As my stove and I are continuing to become better acquainted, there is the occasional catastrophe. This weekend, it was popcorn.
I've not been able to pop "real" popcorn on the stove since we moved, since the townhouse had a glass-top range, where you can't drag pans across it without risking scratches. So I was excited to pop corn this weekend. . .only it didn't turn out so well at first.
Perhaps my oil was a little too hot to begin with. Or perhaps there wasn't enough oil in the pan. At any rate, after emptying out the blackened kernels and washing the pan to rid it of any lingering burned-popcorn taste, I had better success. And I was just sure you would all like to see.
