The Problem with Jiffy Pop!
It's tasty and fun to make....when things go well. I am batting about 500 on the attempts at making the perfect jiffy. You see the problem comes when I try to remove the cardboard top from the aluminum. It''s perforated so you should have an easy time removing the tab, but I think I have been removing a little too much because the aluminum top seems to come separated from the bottom, causing some really cool fireworks! Well after Cheryl hosed me down with the fire extinguisher, she made me go for a second attempt. ( Cheryl MUST have her popcorn for movie viewing!) With this one I had a little better luck with a swirling motion instead of the shaking motion. This is the way jiffy is suppose to look like! Light fluffy and delicious. so if you are feeling adventurous and looking for a change, Give jiffy a try and try your luck at getting every kernel to pop. ( Oh! It''s better than microwave popcorn...especially when you don't have a microwave in your kitchen. )
