Popcorn is a good snack and a great addition to your food storage. Not only can it be popped and topped in any number of ways, it can also be ground into cornmeal and used in recipes that way.
Here are some popcorn tips:
Yellow popcorn – has more hull & is meatier – great for caramel corn
White Popcorn – has less hull – better for those with diverticulitis
Baby or Ladyfinger popcorn is the best.
If popcorn won’t pop or is old, try this:
Put 2 cups popcorn and 1 T. water in a quart jar. Shake 2-3 times a day until the popcorn absorbs water. Pop when the corn is dry.
Here is a fun popcorn recipe:
HONEY BUTTER POPCORN
1 cube real butter
1/3 c. light corn syrup
½ c. honey
1 c. sugar
1 c. cream or canned milk
½ t. salt
1 t. vanilla
Cook to 238º. Pour on popped corn. This popcorn does not go hard, it is gooey and very good.
