Lunch: smoothies, popcorn and Winnie the Pooh. I learned the perfect way to pop corn on the stove for the cookbook, “How to Cook Everything” which incidentally I highly recommend. Anyway. Use two tablespoons of fat for a 1/2 cup of popcorn seed. Heat the fat (bacon dripping or coconut oil give it a lovely flavor) in a covered pan on medium heat with three seeds in it. When they pop put the rest of the seeds in. If you want to make kettle corn, add a tablespoon or so of sugar at this point. It should take around five minutes from here. Shake it every once in a while, and take it off the heat when the popping slows. If your pop corn seed isn’t popping well, it’s gotten too dry. Put it in the fridge and it will pop better next time. If I had a microwave I would do this.
“No,” said Pooh, “not these. These are called mastershalums.”
Have a blessed week and go read some “Pooh Winnie BEAR!” as one of my girls says. It puts a smile on my face every time.
