How to Pop Homegrown Popcorn on the Cob in the Microwave
I grew popcorn in my garden this year and have many cobs of popcorn. I want to show you how easy it is to pop my homegrown popcorn on the cob in the microwave.
Our kids love this and think it's really cool!
First, you must find out if the cob is dry enough to pop. This is as simple as taking a few kernels of the cob and popping them. Once the kernels fully pop, you know the popcorn is ready to go.
I just take the whole cob and throw it into a paper lunch bag. Then, you fold over the top a few times to close it. Place the bag in the microwave for 2 minutes and Voila! You have a bowl of microwave popcorn.
I like to throw the whole cob in the bowl with the popped popcorn for show. Add butter and salt if you like.
