Cook on high for 2-5 minutes depending

on the power of your microwave. Watch

and listen to the corn popping and when

it stops popping it’s done! Use hot pads to

remove from the microwave as the plate

and the bowl will be hot. Add butter or

your favorite topping and serve.

  1. I do the same except in a paper bag (doubled lunch sack for a small batch). I fold the top down once or twice and “stitch” it closed with a bamboo skewer. You are right about monitoring it closely as it will catch on fire!

  2. I have been thinking of a way to preserve my popcorn. I package it here in Nigeria and supply but it does not last for more than two weeks. Please can you help me with a way of preserving my popped popcorn to increase the shelf life?

    • I preserve my popcorn by putting the kernels in my freezer. It lasts a very long time there but as I said it is the kernels. Popped popcorn is meant to be eaten within a week but will last two weeks if stored in an airtight container as you know. I have read where you can store popped popcorn in a sealed bag and placed in the freezer as well to keep it fresh. They stated it doesn’t actually freeze but stays fresh longer. Give it a try and I hope this helps.

  3. We’ve just started to do the same but we put a quarter cup of popcorn in a lunch bag, fold it over and microwave it for the same amount of time as you do. It really is good! The spray sounds like a great idea, we’ll try that next time.- Neek
