It is easy. Let the popcorn dry out and then put it in a paper bag  twist the top and nuke  it in the microwave. You must stay in the room  as to  not burn it . I take it out when it stops continuously popping. I would rather loose a few un popped kernels than burn a bunch or popcorn or start a fire. 
Happy Popping

Tips from Tish - popcorn

Put one ear in a paper bag.
Fold the end closed, lay it flat in the microwave and cut a vent snip in the top surface of the bag.
Microwave until the popping slows to a pause between pops.
I am saving mine for a table decoration and will pop it on Friday.


Does anyone know how to make the popcorn that we received in our last box of goodies?

We've sometimes fallen behind in trying our new produce, so last week (from a CSA share several weeks ago), I was making a soup and went to cut up what looked like turnips and discovered they had a strange bright red inside. I looked them up and found out they are watermelon radishes and are best eaten raw, so I sliced them up and tried a few. They were amazing! For those who didn't get a chance to really try them: they are related to both the horseradish and turnip families.  The inside tastes like a sweet radish - almost beet-like it was so sweet, and the outside (white/green) tastes spicy like horseradish.  They are the only vegetables that all three of our kids agree are yummy and will eat without hesitation.  Here is a good link describing them and what to do with them:

I thought that this was our BEST season yet!! Can't wait for the spring season to arrive! Loved the gooseneck pumpkin, all of the squash, carrots, and various greens. The best part was that my family was always happy to try something new - if it had come from the grocery store it would not have held the same fascination or excitement!!)

Can you please tell me what the tannish sweet potato looking things are?
