Microwave Method

Ingredients

  • 1 corn cob
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • Salt
  • Butter
  • Paper Bag

Directions 

  1. Put whole corn cob or extracted kernels into a medium-size paper bag.
  2. Fold the end of the bag over twice, and microwave on the popcorn setting until popping slows to between 2–3 seconds.
  3. If popping the whole corn cob a portion of kernels may remain unpopped.
  4. Empty out popped kernels into a bowl and return cob to the paper bag and microwave cob on the popcorn setting for another minute or until popping slows to between 2-3 seconds.
  5. Be careful of steam when you open the bag.
  6. Toss with melted butter and salt or your favorite popcorn toppings!

Stove Top Method

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup corn kernels
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Butter

Directions

  1. Gently flick corn kernels off with your thumb into a large bowl or paper bag, and blow away any debris.
  2. Add two tablespoons gee, vegetable, or canola oil to a heavy-bottomed, lidded pot.
  3. Add several “test” corn kernels in the pot. Cover and heat at medium-high.
  4. When you hear the kernels pop, remove the pot from heat. Add ⅔ cup of corn kernels, and shake to coat with oil.
  5. Return pot to heat and leave the lid cracked enough to let steam escape but not the popcorn. Shake periodically.
  6. When there are 2–3 seconds between pops, remove from heat and toss with melted butter and salt!
