Air Poppin'

For some reason when I was packing for my move I decided to leave my microwave behind for Arron.  I figured I'd buy another one...but now that I'm here I'm trying to live without it.

This old air popper had been in storage for at least 3 years but I decided to bring it along anyway.

I'm pretty certain I bought this puppy in about 1995.

Got me some Orville.

Laughed at the popped corn flying out of the shoot and pretty much all over the kitchen.  Startled by the few kernels that finished popping after already landing in the big silver bowl.

Drizzled with real butter melted on the actual stove.  Old school.

I <3 air popped popcorn! I always add some nutritional yeast for some cheesy goodness.

I loooove my air popper. It's ridiculously old but it probably gets used at least 3 times a week... if not more. :O

Try it with EVOO and sea salt. It will change your life, I promise. ;)

I have that air popper! Honestly, nothing like real popcorn - air popped or made in a pot on the stove. Microwave popcorn is just not the same.

This totally reminds me of my childhood! I love airpoppers.
