Popcorn, Splendid Stovetop

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup popcorn
3 tablespoons butter
sea salt to taste

Preparation

1
Pour the olive oil into a large lidded saucepan and drop in 3 kernels of corn. Put the lid on and turn the heat up to medium-high.
2
Listen for the kernels to pop. As soon as they pop, pour all of the corn kernels into the pan and replace the lid.
3
Shake the pan regularly as the kernels start exploding like mad. When the popping rate slows down, turn off the heat and leave the pan on the burner. Allow the remaining kernels to pop (2-3 minutes).
4
Once the popping stops, pour the blossoms into the serving bowl(s).
5
Put the butter into the hot pan and allow it to melt (you probably won't have to turn the heat back on).
6
When the butter is melted, scrape it into the bowl using a rubber spatula. Toss the blossoms and butter together in the bowl until the blossoms are evenly flavored with the butter.
7
Sprinkle on sea salt to taste.
