Hidden Valley Popcorn!
I pop my popcorn the old fashioned way. In a pot! I don't know the measurements, but I would say in a six quart pot use a little less than 1/4 cup of vegetable oil and 1/2 cup of popcorn. Put the lid on it and turn the heat on high. In my pot these measurements will just fill the pot to the lid. Once the popping slows to about 1 pop every other second, remove from the burner. When the popping stops remove the lid and dump popcorn into a very large mixing bowl. Place 1/4 to 1/2 stick of BUTTER, not margarine, in the hot pot and replace the lid. Do not put pot back on hit burner as this may scorch the butter. Pour the now melted butter over your popcorn. Open a 1oz package of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix (the powder stuff) and sprinkle the entire contents over the popcorn. Toss the popcorn lightly and ENJOY!!
