Popcorn in the microwave
Today I first tried to cook popcorn in the microwave. Since this technique appeared relatively recently, it is not surprising that I did not even imagine until this moment how to cook popcorn in the microwave. Now I have already cooked and ready to share my thoughts about that with you.
I must say right away that I was preparing a special popcorn, which is designed for cooking in the microwave. It is sold in a special package, in which it is necessary to cook it.
Cooking time: 3.5 minutes difficulty: Easy power: 700 watts
I’ll start right from the very beginning. I bought several packages with popcorn in the store. I came home and turned one of them to cook. The paper bag, in which the grain of corn was scattered, was packed in a plastic bag so that the grains would not spoil. Rectangular paper package. During preparation, this form of the package made it difficult to prepare corn, as all the time I strove to get stuck with one of the angles during scrolling the plate with the microwave mechanism.
If the manufacturer took care of convenience, he would have created a round package shape. It would be more convenient. The package to the microwave must be sent by the inscription “Up” up. Turn on the microwave for 3.5 minutes at full power. The neighbor said that you can turn on the microwave for 2 minutes, then take the package, shake and send it to the microwave again for 1-1.5 minutes. Popcorne cooking time depends not only on the power of the technique. You need to navigate by sound. As soon as the grains begin to burst every 2-3 seconds, you can turn off the microwave. Otherwise, the grains will begin to burn. During the preparation of popcorn, you do not need to move away from the microwave. We listen to corn grains and click “Stop” when “music” begins to slow down.
The finished popcorn is cooled and served to the table. Personally, I liked to cook popcorn in the microwave than in a pan, as I did before. Good film and fun company. Friends delicious popcorn!

If you take pre.Processed corn for popcorn in the supermarket, stolen in bags. Then the package (weighing 100 grams, but of the same final volume as 50 g of dry grain) will be switched and prepared in 2-3 minutes. Alas, this pre.Processed corn is also processed by a flavor, which not everyone likes.
Cooking time will be different for each stove and for each batch of grain. Therefore, it is better to set the minimum. After 1-2 minutes from the start of cooking corn will begin to explode. Explosions will first be rare, then frequent, and then rare again. The third stage means it’s time to turn off the stove.

Tips for the recipe
Popcorn (air corn) at home: recipe and typical errors
A huge number of materials on the preparation of popcorn are on the Internet, but the same errors are often made there, and some subtleties, on the contrary, are not enough. Therefore, it was decided to pay close attention to this issue and paint the recipe so that everyone is guaranteed to get the perfect result.
Home popcorn, oddly enough, is no more difficult to do than popcorn for the microwave, but if you fill your hand, then it’s even easier and faster, especially if several servings are needed. Well, as for the taste. Store popcorn, neither ready, nor for the microwave, even nearby I was lying with home. So, let’s get down.
Take the largest pan and put on the fire just above the average. For a stove with 6 divisions, this is approximately 4. It is important to ensure uniform heating, that is, if you have a gas stove, it is advisable to use a pan with a thick bottom.
Pour refined vegetable oil into the pan so that it covers the bottom with a layer of 1-2 mm (part of the oil can be replaced with butter or use unrefined oil). When it warms up well, pour the grains of corn so that they completely cover the bottom of the pan in one layer. Shake slightly so that the grains are covered with oil and evenly distributed along the bottom.
Cover the pan with a frying pan (a grid that does not allow the oil to spray) or a colander so that the exploding grains do not fly away. The fact is that the grains contain a lot of water, thanks to which they explode. If you cover the pan with a lid, the steam will condensate and drip on the popcorn, and the grains hit in the lid will get wet. If there is no cooler, no screen, you need to at least leave the lid slightly ajar. Part of the moisture is still condensed, but this will at least reduce the wet.
Когда интервалы между хлопками станут более 2-3 секунд, снимите кастрюлю с огня и добавьте соль, сахарную пудру, тертый пармезан, растопленный шоколад, карамель, сироп — в общем то, с чем вы любите попкорн. Cover the pan with a lid (if it is wet. Wipe), shake vigorously so that the contents mix well, and immediately remove the lid so that the steam continues to go out.
Slightly shake the pan from side to side, so that the grains are not completely open to the bottom, after which the popcorn is ready to use. Put it to the bowls, turn it on and enjoy it.
Often they say that you need to cook popcorn over high heat. This is not so. The grains will be burned without having time to open, and then the open grains will be burned. With a correctly selected temperature regime (just above the average), nothing will never burn out anything.
Always try to cover the whole bottom of the pots of corn with grains. Thus you get a product with a minimum amount of oil. If you put the grains less, you have to add more oil to ensure that it provides heat transfer. As a result, popcorn will be very fat. So if you need a little pop, take just a smaller pan.
In the pan, cooking popcorn is most convenient, since the ratio of the diameter of the pan and its height is ideal for these purposes. If they close the entire bottom, then the finished popcorn will almost fill the pan. But if you make popcorn in a pan, then the finished popcorn simply does not fit, and if you do a little, then, again, it will turn out too bold.
