Test Kitchen Tip
You can heat the popcorn and oil together, or heat the oil and a couple of kernels, then when they pop, add the rest of the kernels to the oil.
Heat oil and popcorn in a 10-inch cast-iron deep skillet, covered, over medium-high.
Shake skillet frequently when popcorn begins to pop, 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat when the popping slows to 1–2 kernels per second. Immediately transfer popcorn to a bowl and season with salt.
