Keep on high heat, shaking pot and lifting its cover frequently to let steam out of pot–this keeps the popcorn light and fluffy.

If fat-free, fluffier popcorn is what you prefer, the Presto Pop-Lite costs twenty dollars US at Wal-Mart and other stores.

M-J’s Green Beans with Almonds

M-J's Green Beans Amandine
M-J's Green Bean and Almond Sauté
In a large pan or wok, heat some peanut or red chile oil (M-J’s recipe is on the Elegant Survival.net Cuisine page). Empty a bag of frozen or fresh green beans into the hot oil. The thinner the beans, the better. Crush some roasted chile almonds (M-J’s recipe is on the Cuisine page at Elegant Survival.net) inside of a bag with a mallet or potato masher. Empty them into the pan with the green beans after they have begun to look a bit browned. Toss this together and sautée it for a while longer. Serve alongside chicken or beef, or as a high-protein, high-fiber meal if you don’t eat meat.
