Homemade Popcorn Like the Movies

Interesting Tip

I found this interesting tidbit on how to make excellent popcorn. Obviously, this is a gluten-free recipe.

Thirty-odd years ago, I worked in a movie theater that was voted as having the best popcorn in our city. I made quite a bit of that popcorn. We had two simple tricks to great crunchy popcorn. The first was to use double the oil. The second was to let it dry out overnight and reheat it the next day. Busy weekends always drove down the quality as it never had the chance to dry out completely. At the concession stand, we were always asked how fresh the popcorn was. "Made it half an hour ago," was the standard response.

This might be fun to try on a Friday night for a Saturday night movie. I'll have to make sure to make plenty because I don't want to run out if its a hit.

This series of posts will cover some tips and tricks that I have learned about my twelve-year-old daughter's gluten-free lifestyle in the Boston area. Gluten-free eating can be challenging in any big city, but especially in Boston due to the high number of restaurants and availability of options. I've been learning what I can to make sure my daughter can still enjoy eating out, and I want to share what I've learned so that other families in the same situation can benefit.
