I read this on another site and it was so interesting I thought I would try it out. This is a great tip.
About two weeks ago, I made somer popcorn. I lightly salted the leftover popcorn and poured it into a glass jar (with a lid). I read somewhere that popcorn would stay fresh and not go stale if you stored it in a glass jar. I save those big, glass jars that pickles come in. I wash well, and then store with the lid off and newspaper stuffed down inside to eliminate the dill taste. Well, it's two weeks later, and I'm still eating popcorn out of that jar. I'm trying to avoid processed foods and the lightly salted popcorn gives me my "fix" for crunchy, salty things around snack time. I just really couldn't believe that popcorn could stay crunchy and completely fresh for that long! Amazing! What a cheap and good snack
