Once the kernels start popping, gently move the pan over the burner and reduce to medium heat. Usually, within 3 minutes the kernels slow down, and you will want to take the pot off the burner right away. Holding the lid with a pot holder if is not burn safe, shake the popcorn a bit.

If you like a lot of butter, you can add more melted butter and salt to taste preference. Shake it together in the pot and pour into your serving bowl.
You can add so many different flavors when the kernels have popped such as garlic, paprika, grated cheese, chili powder, cinnamon, sugar, ranch dressing packets, onion soup packets, and more. You can be as creative as you like.

You can also change cooking oils and add teriyaki sauce, ginger, soy sauce, peanut sauce, and more.

You might even want to add almonds, cashews or any nut you prefer and mix with your favorite flavorings. Other goodies are chocolate drizzle or pieces, Carmel drizzle or pieces, dried coconut or marshmallows.
