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!
