Moses in a Nutshell

Here's a little religious material I was asked to illustrate for a textbook. I love how the parted Red Seat turned out. Inspired by the game Riven... and the movie The Deep. Yep, I'm that old.

Scott's Famous Popcorn Recipe

Have the bowl popcorn will go in, oven mitts, the pot lid, and your measured 1-cup of popping-corn kernels out and ready to use. 

Cover the bottom of the pot with about 2 - 3 mm of olive oil (or corn oil, or coconut oil), put in 3 un-popped kernels and crank the heat to High. 

When those 3 kernels pop, take the pot off the heat for 30 seconds.  Put it back on the heat and add the rest of the un-popped popcorn, enough that it crowds the bottom of the pot… about 1 cup of kernels. 

Put the lid on and wait for the corn to start popping. When it does, shake the pot every 5-10 seconds to keep the corn from burning onto the bottom, and to keep the un-popped corn at the bottom so it can pop. 

If the pot fills up before the popping is done, dump some in the bowl and put the pot back on the heat. 

When the popping slows to more than 2 seconds between pops, dump it all out into the bowl. Put water in the pot to cool it down fast so it doesn’t burn the remaining corn bits and oil to the bottom of the pot. 

Salt your popcorn and eat it up. Pink Himalayan salt is really good.
