Baby Popcorn?

Baby Popcorn

Today I made baby popcorn.  Yep, that’s right!  If you don’t believe me, take a look at the picture.  Take a close look, and do a size comparison of my fingers and the popcorn kernels.  Either I have monstrously large fingers, or those popcorn kernels are really small.

So what’s the deal?  Well, the deal is that Ocean State Job Lots is running a 20% off sale on all Bob’s Red Mill products.  And since I’m doing gluten free, I get excited about those sales!  So I was browsing the enormous BRM display, getting multiple bags of sorghum flour, potato starch, and ground flaxseed, and my eye was caught by a bag that said, “Whole Grain Sorghum.”  It wasn’t ground sorghum; it was entire kernels of the grain.

On the back, there was a recipe for “popped sorghum.”  1/4 cup of sorghum in a paper bag in the microwave, or in a saucepan on the stove top.  I tried it on the stove top, because we couldn’t find any paper bags to use in the microwave.

What does it taste like?  Well, like popcorn, more or less!  Add a little salt and munch away!
