Expert Tips

  • For added festive flavor, add 1 to 2 cups of pecans or almonds to the popcorn before baking. This popcorn, with or without the nuts, makes a nice gift. Wrap in a pretty tin and tie with a bow to present to a special friend or relative.
  • You can make the popcorn up to 48 hours in advance. Just remember to cool completely, then store tightly covered.
