Day 20: Popcorn Packaging!

Day 20: Popcorn packaging! WHA? That’s right. It’s almost time. Almost time to send your packages out for the holidays! All you need: a box, a jar of popcorn kernels, and something to send. I sent this sweet little kitty brooch out to my friend a couple weeks ago. She was able to compost the packaging! No need to deal with those annoying styrofoam puffs.

How to pop kernels without oil:

- Heat up a large pan on your stove top to medium/high heat

- Pour 1/3 cup of kernels into the pan. This amount will fill a small box. If you need more, make a couple of batches.

- Place the pan on the stovetop, and cover with a lid.

- Shake the pan a few times to keep the kernels from sticking. When you hear the popcorn popping, remove from the heat.

- Your popcorn is done when you don’t hear any more popping.

- Let cool, use as packaging!
