I bought some 'raw popcorn' for making popcorn. I hope it's not wishful thinking, as in that's where you make popcorn from =x

Do I just put them in a microwave? I need to cover with somethingso that they won't pop all over the oven ya? You're talking to a complete popcorn noob here :D

And Do i slap the butter over the raw popcorn bits before popping them?

Thanks in advance.

Ohh, I hated doing that. :laughing:
We have this random (VERY old I'll point out) popcorn popper.
It does the popping for you. :P
But I'm the kind of person who enjoys the bag in the microwave that comes from a box, LOL.

But when making it with just the seeds,
Puting them in a microvable container, or bowl, and covering them with plastic wrap should do it.
But yeah just make sure there is some little places for the air to come out.
It might explode. D: And thats no fun, lol
And as for the butter, puting it on it when its done is always easier. :P
Although, I'm not sure how it would turn out if you put it on first...
Hmm. :scratchchin:

But anyways, good luck with it! :D
