How to Pop & Store

How to Pop Popping Ears: 

Place one ear in a provided microwavable bag and fold the bag over twice. Microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes or until popping slows. It is typical for not all kernels to pop. Season as desired and enjoy!

How to Pop Kernels on the Stove: 

Our favorite way to pop our popcorn is on the stove! We love to use our Whirley Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper but you can also use a large sauce pan with lid.

  • 3 Tablespoons of oil - you can use coconut oil, canola oil, olive oil, or bacon grease (coconut oil is our favorite!)
  • 1/2 cup of Buckeye Family Farms Popcorn

Directions: Add kernels and oil to the Whirley Pop. Turn the crank until there is no more popping. Empty into a large bowl and enjoy!

How to Pop in the Air Popper: 

If you have an air popper, simply follow the directions listed on your air popper. There is no oil needed with this method. Empty into a large bowl and enjoy!

How to Pop in the Microwave: 

You can also pop our popcorn in the microwave using a Microwave Popcorn Bowl or a brown paper bag. If you using a Microwave Popcorn Bowl, simply follow the directions listed. For the brown paper bag method: 

  • 1/3 cup of Buckeye Family Farms Popcorn
  • 1 medium brown paper bag

Directions: Add the popcorn to the paper bag and fold the top over two times. Microwave on high until the popping slows, usually 1:30-2:30 minutes. Empty into a large bowl and enjoy!

How to Store Buckeye Family Farms Popcorn:

Most of our retail packages are resealable so as long as you keep the kernels in this package, your popcorn will last a very long time! Freshness does decrease after 18-24 months.
