Friday Night Popcorn

Put some vegetable shortening (like Crisco) into a large skillet that has a cover.

Melt the shortening over low heat.

Add enough popcorn to barely cover the bottom of the pan. The shortening should cover the popcorn. Add more if necessary.

Stir constantly until 1-2 kernels pop. (The kernels will swell and be very tender.)

Put on a cover and raise heat and shake very fast until all the corn is popped.

Pour into a bowl and salt it. No butter is necessary.

Eat and enjoy it!
