Popcorn is a great snack for having around the house, but eating it all in one go isn't a fun task. How does one deal with stale popcorn without eating it all the minute its cooked? Everyone has had a down day where they just settle for what's in the pantry, but why settle for stale popcorn when you can freshen it up with just a few steps? All that is needed is an oven and a few minutes of spare time.

  1. 1

    Spread the stale popcorn evenly over the baking tray.

  2. 2

    Turn the oven to a low temperature (the lowest setting on your oven) and slide the baking tray into the oven.

  3. 3

    Let the popcorn sit and slowly heat up over the course of 30 minutes. Taste a kernel or two after that time. If it is still too stale, try turning the heat up and then taste again after 10 minutes.
