From seed to snack – How to Make Popcorn on the Cob

If you have a paper lunch bag, a dried corn on the cob, and a microwave, you can pop your own popcorn from the cob in just a few minutes.

A few notes: You don’t have to use butter or oil if you want to skip that step. We’ve also popped a cob with just one paper bag for 2 minutes. Experiment to find out what works in your microwave so that your cob doesn’t smolder and burn. It can help to listen for when the popping slows down, and remember, the bag is hot when you open it!
