Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ cup of your favorite popcorn kernels
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 1 tsp dried marjoram
  • ½ tsp hot paprika
  • ¼ cup unsalted, melted butter, to taste
Instructions
  1. Start by getting a large pot onto the stove, and bring it to a medium heat. Add in the oil and two tablespoons of butter, and let it melt. After a few minutes, add in a few kernels of corn. Cover with a lid, give a gentle shake, then once they pop, add in the remaining kernels. Cover, and begin shaking the pot, back and forth. This will be your job until the popcorn is done popping. Midway through popping add in the marjoram, paprika, and salt. Cover and begin shaking, and shaking to finish popping.
  2. Once the popcorn pops, dump the corn into a large bowl. Add in the melted butter, a pinch of salt, then give it a good toss. Taste, and season with more butter or salt if you prefer.
