Vintage colander doubles as corn popper
I used it to make stovetop popcorn, by upending it over a 12" frying pan.
I used some oil, some low-fat salted margarine, pinch-salt, tsp.Xylitol, and 4 TB pop-kernels.
These ingredients were on the frypan, over which was the colander. The colander legs became handy as handles.
I turned the gas up high on stovetop. At times, I shifted the pan around on the flame to facilitate process.
It was a bit messy, since some oil splattered thru the holes, but the resulting popcorn (in the pan) was very good, like kettle corn, but healthier tasting.
