Sunday night is our popcorn night, and this popcorn is an absolute hit! The popcorn pops evenly, is not greasy, and has a wonderful, crisp flavor.
Step 1: Heat 1/4 cup lard on medium heat (covered)
Step 2: Add in 4 kernels of popcorn and wait for all 4 to pop (covered)
Step 3: Remove from heat 30 seconds, remove 4 pieces of popped popcorn with a fork (they will be hot), and add 1 tsp of salt
Step 4: Add in 1/2 cup of popcorn and return to heat (covered)
Step 5: Wait for popcorn to finish popping (when pops are 3 seconds apart), remove from heat, add additional salt or butter if desired, and enjoy!
