For the best pop for your money, store your popcorn right

Storing popcorn right helps to keep kernels fresh

by Debi and Grant

Popcorn pops when the moisture in the kernel heats up. Each kernel requires 13.5 to 14 percent of moisture to pop. On a warm day, one percent of that moisture can evaporate, and that can have an impact on the quality of the pop in a popcorn popper. When three percent vanishes, the kernel can be rendered unpoppable. So to keep popcorn poppable, properly store your popcorn in an airtight container and in a cool cupboard. While any quality container will do, we’ve discovered that a good airtight coffee container works great to keep popcorn fresh.
