Albums: Home Harvest
We grew Strawberry Popcorn last year (this year as well); it was yum. We used an air popper to pop it. Some of it we dried in the oven as it cooled from making breakfast cereal. Other we just left in a cloth bog for a couple of weeks. The older and tried it was the better it popped.
Thanks for the tip Kali, I'll definately try that method out this morning on the strawberry pop corn I harvested last year. As for the dehydrator......I'm getting one asap! :O)
I think they do have to be very dry before they will pop. do you have a dehydrator? you could try this method of cooking; put oil in to just cover the bottom of the pan, heat it up with just three kernals in it until they pop, remove from heat and add kernals to cover the bottom of the pan in one layer, count to 30, then replace back on the heat with a lid, they should evenly heat through and pop closely together. I always used to burn popcorn until I learnt this method :)
Hi Josephal, I've just now tried popping some and I'm quite dissapointed as it sounded like they were popping inside the pot but once the lid was off I've found they had only just opened. Only one or two popped fully. I tried it twice... First time with too much butter, 2nd time with only skerit & both sounded the same. Maybe they are not dry enough? I've never been good at popping corn he he. Still, they do look rather lovely hung beside my strawberry pop corn on display.
Quite cute, have you tried making popcorn jane?
