Popcorn on the Cob
I love popcorn. And, until now, I had not ever tried popcorn on the cob. I actually didn’t think about where real popcorn came from until now. Of course, I knew it was corn. And, I remember the days of Jiffy Pop on the stove or your mom stirring a pot with oil on a burner. I even still have an air popper that rarely gets used. I know that there was life before microwave popcorn. I just had not ever tried it.
These beauties came in the last CSA box and I have been waiting for a good movie night with my dudes to use them.
To be honest, I was silly giddy to try this and dudes could have cared less. My little guy even said, “Ya, Mom, just make popcorn.” Thanks. I feel appreciated. So, here it is, Popcorn on the Cob:
And, what do you do with it? Sadly, I had to Google this for instructions. Put it in a brown bag and microwave it until it pops. (duh) The suggestion was for three minutes. I ended up going for two separate sessions to get it to pop. I don’t think there is a set rule here.
I was super excited because it was popping like crazy and I thought it was going to be so awesome right on the cob. I was wrong. It burnt and didn’t pop all the way. The picture almost makes it look cool but really it wasn’t that big of a deal. I was disappointed.
Good thing we always have ‘old faithful’ at our house. I popped some Orville and just mixed it all together. The dudes didn’t even notice. Or, they didn’t bother to say anything if they did.
At least the movie was good. Oh, and if you notice, we had cookies and hot chocolate, too!
