Different Methods to Make Popcorn

4 min read

Everybody loves popcorn!  It’s the perfect movie snack and children love it for its sweet taste.  However, there is more to this bag of delight than meets the eye. 

Popcorn is a whole grain and contains antioxidants and phytonutrients which work in your body to fight free radicals and certain types of cancers. This also has also been shown to aid in weight loss and help lower cholesterol. Not to mention, it’s also affordable, thus buying popcorn wholesale in  Singapore for instance, is the common trend for go-to snacks.

The best part is that popcorn can be made in a variety of ways, and you don’t need any special machines or oils to make it. You can use a stovetop for fluffy, old fashioned taste, the microwave if you’re feeling lazy, or a hot air popper for the most efficient way to make popcorn.

Method 1: Stovetop Popcorn

What you need: A large pot with a lid, oil, popcorn kernels and salt. Optional: Butter or oil for popping

How to make:

1. Put three tablespoons of vegetable oil and one kernel of popcorn in the pot and put it on a medium heat on your stovetop.

2.  Once the first kernel has popped, add three more kernels to the pot, cover with the lid and wait for those kernels to pop.

3.  Take the pot off the stove once all four kernels have popped because this means that your pot is hot enough for popping.

4. Pour in half a cup of popcorn kernels and put the lid back on, shaking occasionally to ensure that they do not burn or stick to the bottom of the pot.

5. Once there are five seconds between pops, take the pot off the stove and pour your popcorn into a large bowl.

6. Add salt to taste and butter if you like (optional).

Method 2: Microwave Popcorn

What you need: A microwave-safe dish, oil, popcorn kernels and salt (optional)

How to make it:

1. Put three tablespoons of vegetable oil and one kernel of popcorn in your microwave-safe bowl, and cover with a paper towel.

2. Put the bowl in the microwave and heat for ninety seconds on high or until you hear more than five pops per second.

3. Take the bowl out and pour your popcorn into a large bowl, add salt to taste.

Method 3: Hot Air Popper

What you need: A hot air popper, oil, popcorn kernels and salt (optional)

How to make it:

1. Pour three tablespoons of vegetable oil into the base of your hot air popper.

2. Put one kernel of corn in the top of your hot air popper and turn it on, covering the outlet with a nearby bowl until you hear the first pop.

3. Take off the cover and wait for between three to five pops before adding your kernels into the chamber one by one, ensuring that each kernel has its own un-popped space.

4. Once there are over four seconds between pops, your popcorn is ready.

5. Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and add salt to taste if you like.

Method 4: Brown Paper Bag

What you need: A brown paper bag, oil, popcorn kernels and salt (optional)

How to make it:

1. Put three tablespoons of vegetable oil in a brown paper lunch bag along with one kernel of popcorn.

2. Fold the top of your bag down twice, then fold under to seal it so that there are no air leaks.

3. Put your bag in the microwave and heat for about ninety seconds until you hear more than five pops per second or see popping corn coming out of the opening of the bag.

4. Take your bag out of the microwave and open it slowly to let out any built-up steam.

5. Pour your popcorn into a bowl and add salt if you like.

Method 5: Butter In A Pan

What you need: A frying pan, butter or oil for popping, popcorn kernels and salt (optional)

How to make it:

1. Put two tablespoons of butter or oil in a frying pan and heat on the stovetop for about thirty seconds.

2. Put one kernel of popcorn into the hot oil, then cover with a lid.

3. Once that kernel pops, put three more kernels of corn into the pan, cover it up and wait for those kernels to pop as well before adding the rest of the popcorn kernels.

4. Take the lid off and turn up the heat so that your popping corn doesn’t burn before it pops.

5. When there are over four seconds between each pop, pour your popcorn into a large bowl and add salt to taste if you like.
