Microwave Popcorn - A Quick & Easy Snack! Yum

May 05, 2020 2 min read

Our organic yellow popcorn is one of our most popular products (although our new white popcorn is gaining in popularity too!).  We often get customers asking about how to cook it in the microwave.  Here are a couple of ways to pop corn in the microwave. We’ll start with the simplest!

The paper bag method

Take a plain brown paper lunch bag, pop in ½ cup of our organic yellow or white popcorn kernels and fold down the top several times to close it.

Put the bag in the microwave (upright) and set your timer to cook for at least two minutes. Some microwaves may need a bit longer so if most of the kernels haven’t popped have another go.  You may need a bit of trial & error to find the sweet spot for your own microwave.

This method is fast and oil free, but some might find it bland.

 

Classic Basic Microwave Popcorn

You’ll need a glass bowl (or container) that fits easily into your microwave, salt & the oil of your choice (most people use olive or coconut oil) and a top that allows for some small amount of air to escape.  We like to use a glass bowl with a silicone lid that just sits on the top.  This way the air can escape if needed but the kernels won’t pop out.

Here you will need to find the right ratios of un-popped kernels to bowl (we recommend being conservative here, although seeing the bowl pop over the top can delight the kids, if not the parents who have to clean it up!).  A good rule of thumb is:

2 tablespoons or 1/8 cup of un-popped kernels = 4 cups) popped corn

Put your desired amount of kernels in the bowl and add enough oil & salt to cover them. You don’t need a lot of oil. We then mix it all around to be sure the kernels are covered in the oil as this is what will give them a nice quick fluffy pop!

Put the bowl with the cover (remember, can’t be airtight!) in the microwave, and again, start with 2 minutes but be aware you may need to add to this time depending on your microwave.

Then just sit back, relax and enjoy your healthy snack!
