Corn is able to pop because, unlike other grains, its kernels have a hard moisture-sealed hull and a dense starchy filling. This allows pressure to build inside the kernel until an explosive “pop” results.
Pop corn is very easy to make! Heat 1t of oil in a pot over the stove. Put 1/4C of popping corn int the pot and put a lid on!!! You should soon hear the corn popping. Occasionally shake the pot so the corn doesn’t burn. The corn is ready when you can count to ten without hearing more corn popping! You should have about 3 cups of popcorn by now.
You can flavour the corn with butter and salt, icing sugar, pepper…try your own combinations.
