Popcornpopping!!

Was looking around for a bottle of popcorn for popping. Finally found a packet of dried raw popcorn. Must admit this is my first attempt at popping corn.
Add the corn into the pan cover the lid turn fire on low and listen. After about 20 *pops* open the lid, Yikes!!! disaster. Most of the corns have not only not popped but burnt.
2nd try. Listen for the *pops* Same result!
Hurried to the world wide web for help.
3rd try. Only this time, 2 table spoon oil was added as instruced(silly me, should have known better). Then the corn. Listen for the *pops* Still burnt but this time more popped!! Guess, the instruction was not explicit enough or my corns were not fresh.
*sigh*
Nevertheless, I had great encouragement from the children who took handfulls each time they walk pass the popcorn bowl.

Yes, yes. So engrossed was I with the pops I forgot to mention the drizzle of honey and sprinkle of sugar to top it off.
You know, I hate to admit it, the cinema popcorns still taste better.

Sounds like fun. Is it available in the supermarket? The raw kind, I mean.
