I make air popped all the time. Key is buy fresh. I get it from the bulk bin at a Food Co-op. But the best thing to do to season your tasty snack.....spray the finished corn with some quick spays of Olive Oil Pam Spray while stirring. This allows your salt ..(or parmesan...or pepper...or chili powder or ranch dressing) to cling to the freshly popped corn...DELISH!

Just echoing the previous post. The fresher the popcorn, the bigger and fluffier the kernels and the softer the hulls. Also the fewer widows and orphans. I got one of those tabletop replicas of the old-time popcorn cart for Christmas, and tested it out this weekend. I didn't have popcorn oil so I used regular vegetable oil. It still came out pretty tasty. I think once I get some butter flavored popcorn oil it's going to be really good. I spend quite a lot on chips for our gaming group, so I will save a lot of money switching to popcorn. In the summer I am going o start making iced tea to save on soda, although I expect they are going to load it down with sugar as they are all HFCS fiends.

Keep your unpopped corn in a Zip-loc or other airtight bag in the refrigerator to avoid that "flat, hard to chew aftertaste".
Pam also makes a butter flavored spray, but I prefer the real thing.
