Popping Cobs

 Kernels can be carefully and neatly removed from the corncob for stovetop, or unhusked corn on the cob can be left whole for use in the microwave.

Microwave method

  1. Butter or salt the cob (optional)
  2. Place it in one of the included paper bags
  3. Fold it closed,
  4. Place in the microwave, and pop like any other popcorn.
  5. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes.

Stovetop method (recommended)

  1. Gently flick corn kernels off with your thumb into a bowl. Blow away any debris.
  2. Add two tablespoons vegetable, peanut, sunflower, safflower, or canola oil to a heavy-bottomed, lidded pot.
  3. Add several “test” corn kernels in the pot—this will indicate when the oil is the correct temp.
  4. Cover and heat at medium-high.
  5. When you hear the kernels pop, remove the pot from heat. Add ⅔ cup of corn kernels, and shake to coat with oil.
  6. Return pot to heat, and leave the lid cracked enough to let steam escape but not the popcorn. Shake periodically.
  7. When there are 2–3 seconds between pops, remove from heat and enjoy popcorn from the cob.
