Make Popcorn in Your Wok

Microwave popcorn is ubiquitous these days, but if you prefer not to use a microwave or would like to make popcorn when the power is out or on a camping trip you can always make it in a wok. In addition to the wok and popcorn you'll need vegetable oil and aluminum foil.
Grace Young from gives us the technique: simply line the lid of your wok with aluminum foil and add 2 tsp of vegetable oil to your wok along with 2 or 3 popcorn kernels. Set your range to medium high and place the lid on the wok. When you hear the kernels pop quickly open the side of the lid and toss in ⅓ cup of popcorn kernels. Set the heat on medium low and shake the wok side to side gently for about a minute until all the kernels have popped.
