Landscaping & Nursery Information for Home Gardeners


The ideal percent moisture for popcorn is between thirteen and fourteen (13 and 14) percent. Field dried popcorn usually approaches this ideal percent.

Occasionally, stored popcorn will fail to pop due to a drop in moisture content. Add one (1) tablespoon water to a quart of popcorn, cover and shake several times. Allow the container to sit for several days to absorb the moisture. This method usually raises the percent moisture by 2 points.

Store shelled popcorn in glass canning jars with tight fitting lids. If stored in a freezer or refrigerator, moisture content should not drop.
