    toss a little oil on it, into the microwave in a paper bag.

    @belmontmedina – but then wouldn’t it pop on the husk? That would just look creepy.

    Yeah, forgot to mention. We don’t have a microwave.

    If you can do it in a microwave, you should be able to do it in an oiled-up, covered pot, right? What is it that distinguishes popcorn kernals from fresh corn kernals anyway?

    this artsy picture was corny

    There is a kernel of truth in what you say. Nothing but pop art on this site these days. I’ll have to get back to basics, put my ear on the ground, and get some less corny pics.

    fresh corn on the cob is immature corn, as I understand it. Corn hardens as it ripens. Popcorn only comes from certain corn varietals, those that explode when heated.

    not all species of corn is “poppable” so I would determine the species first……
