Just looks like normal corn until you
open it up!

It needs to dry on the cob
for a few weeks before we
can take off to kernels to pop them.
How to Cook Popcorn on your Stove Top:1) Heat a Tbsp or two of oil (butter, coconut or veggie) in a pot over medium heat.
2) After a minute or two, when the oil is hot, add 2 Tbsp (for 1 - 2 people) on up to 1/2 cup of kernels to the oil. Immediately cover with a lid and gently shake the pot to ensure all the kernels are coated with oil.
3) Wait a bit and soon the kernels will start popping! Once the frequency of the popping starts to slow down, your popcorn is done. You can easily burn it if you let it go too long...
4) Dress popcorn with your favorite toppings: butter, garlic powder, Braggs, nutritional yeast, salt, hot sauce, soy sauce and more....so many options!
