Recipe: The Best Homemade Popcorn

There are countless things that I love, but stovetop popped popcorn is one of those things that I love so much, I crave it and love to experiment with. I love adding spices and different flavors, but I also love how simple just a little butter and salt can be perfect for it too. Stop using microwave popcorn full of weird chemicals and questionable amounts of sodium.
