This was really good, but 1 cup of unpopped popcorn is too much..you need a really large pot (and the strength to "vigorously slide it back and forth"). I used the biggest one I had and it didn't fit so I ended up burning the bottom.

A better ratio of oil to kernels is 3 T oil for 1/3 C kernels. The pot should be such a size that the kernels just about cover the bottom, and are themselves covered in the oil. Otherwise, there may be scorching. I often add olive oil to the melted butter/garlic mixture, and sprinkle salad herbs over the corn. Sprinkle salad or dipping herbs, too.

How many servings is this? It says 73 calories per serving but there must be more than 1 serving in 20 cups of popcorn!

This is lovely, though I have to substitute vegan margarine and Pecorino Romano due to a sever allergy to cow milk. I also don't bother with the extra oil and mess of stove top popping - I use either my old popper-bowl (a big bowl with a vented lid for use in the microwave) or a clean brown paper bag and nuke it - fast and much less mess.
