Movie Theater Popcorn

Although I don't like to go watch movies at the
movie theater, I will still go to the theater at the 
mall to buy popcorn.  Yes, they will let you in!  

For someone who loves popcorn, 
there is nothing like it.  

Hopefully I have found the secret method.  
I'll report my findings the next time
 I make a batch of popcorn.


Movie theaters use butter-flavored oil, which has a lower water content than butter so it makes popcorn less soggy. Real clarified butter has the same effect.

To make it, melt 2 sticks butter in a glass measuring cup in the microwave.

Let sit for a few minutes; the butter will separate into 3 layers.

Skim off the top layer of foam, then slowly pour the clarified butter into a heatproof container; discard the bottom layer of milk solids.

Use 3 tablespoons hot clarified butter for 10 cups popcorn; refrigerate the rest (it's great for sauteeing).
