Fresh Popcorn has flavor!

Air Drying:

Remove the husks from the popcorn cobs, then place the cobs into mesh bags.

Hang the bags in a dry place for several weeks until the popcorn kernels appear shriveled.  The amount of time will depend on the humidity level.

Push several kernels off the cob with your thumb and pop them in a popcorn popper to test the moisture content.  Shell the remaining popcorn cobs if the kernels pop properly, but leave the other cobs to continue drying if the popcorn does not pop or sticks to the inside of the popper.

 

Oven Drying:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove the husks from the popcorn cobs. Push the kernels of corn off each cob with your thumb. Discard the cobs.

Arrange the popcorn kernels in a single layer in a large roasting pan, then place the pan in the oven. Turn down the oven to the lowest temperature setting. Dry the popcorn for five hours. Stir it every hour. Turn off the oven and leave the popcorn overnight. You can pop the kernels right away or refrigerate it in an airtight container for up to 30 months.
