Why is my homemade popcorn is hard and tough to bite through, how do I make softer popcorn?

I just made homemade popcorn for the 2nd time using a pot on the stove. It is hard to bite through and some of them have a really hard center.

Am I doing something wrong? Maybe using too much oil?

Thanks!

    How old is the popcorn that you’re using? Popcorn kernels do get old and tough if they’ve been sitting too long.

    Use 1/3 cup popcorn to 2 tbsp oil (olive oil is preferred). Cook the popcorn on MEDIUM heat only! Let a little of the steam to escape, and shake continuously when you start hearing popping.

    The best thing to do is to get the Wabash Valley Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper. I have this, and I LOVE it. Perfect popcorn every time, and no widows or orphans!

    You are either using really old popcorn (buy fresh)

    Or are not letting the pan heat up enough, or not to a high enough temperature.

    You asked this question yesterday, did you not get any suitable answers? Throw the popcorn out and get some new stuff. Make sure oil is hot before you put the popcorn in, cover and shake the pot until it stops popping. Use cooking oil. Now don’t make me say this again.

    Use yellow corn rather than white. White kernals are tougher.
