Popcorn on the Cob

October 23rd, 2010 at 05:46 pm

We haven't made it to our new Farmers Market in ages.

Vacation, sick, soccer games, you name it. I have been looking forward to some FRESH corn again! (We have only made it to the market once!)

So, we made it today. The morning was cool and wet, and the place was pretty empty. I suppose they may close up shop for winter, which would be a bummer.

We just got some corn, grapes, and apples. But next to the corn was some "popcorn on the cob." I am not clear exactly how they prepped the corn for popcorn (I read you can get the same result by freezing corn, but it looks more than just frozen).

So, we decided to give it a try.

These were the kids as they scarfed it down: "I don't like it - it's not salty!" Though it lasted all of 5 seconds. Yes, clearly it was terrible! (I did add a little of salt and gladly would have added some butter if they let me! Wink )

I think we are "popcorn on the cob" converts. We should have asked how long it should last - we bought 3 cobs. Will ask next time.

Beats pre-packaged popcorn by a mile. Yum!

    That sounds yummy! Our farmer's market closes at the end of October, then opens again in like April maybe? DH just brought home about 10 large tomatoes from his father's garden in Southern Humboldt (yes he only grows veges!)

    On-the-cob popcorn is one of the things my sister grows at the farmette. She told me once that the only difference is that its hard to shell off the cob. Turning vice into virtue, I guess.

    I forgot to mention that all you do is throw the cob in the microwave (in a bag to contain it) and it pops off the cob!

    Oooh! That does sound delicious. I'm not a big popcorn eater, but something like that might get me into it more. Smile
