Bagged microwave popcorn yields about 3-5 cups popped, but you can stretch your budget by popping bulk corn kernels yourself. Simply scoop them into a brown paper lunch bag, then fold the top over twice. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, until popping slows to 1-2 pops per second. The yield depends on the type of kernel, but as a guideline, 1/4 cup kernels yields about 10 cups popcorn.
For the best flavor and freshest taste, start with plain, unsalted popcorn and serve immediately.
Tip: Mix in almonds and dried cherries before drizzling, and you’ve got one delicious, nutritious trail mix.
Tip: Add 1-2 drops red food coloring to the syrup to make old-fashioned pink popcorn, or color it to match the holiday or occasion you’re making it for.
Let your dishwasher work harder for you with Cascade® ActionPacs™ with the Grease-Fighting Power of Dawn®. The perfect combination for a great clean, it rinses away residue, and leaves dishes sparkling.
Tip: Control portion size by scooping popcorn into paper cones.
Tip: Hosting a party? Set out an assortment of flavored popcorn for guests to try.
Tip: If your mix contains anything fresh, like grated cheese or citrus zest, slip a piece of parchment or wax paper over the shaker, then screw on the lid and store in the fridge.
