PoPcOrN

Itís a chilly day here today so I popped some corn as a snack.

This got me thinking. I hosted an intern missionary from the US a few years ago and he couldnít believe that I pOp corn on the stovetop! He has only ever had microwave pOpCoRn! He said my way was waaaay better.

Do you pOp corn the traditional way or do you prefer the microwave kind?

Whatís your favourite pOpCoRn topping?

Re: PoPcOrN

I have only used a microwave too. I like the sweet kind, toffee, or salted caramel. I eat the savoury kind sometimes if I'm having a salad, and I have it to hand.

Re: PoPcOrN

Believe it or not, I've never had popcorn in my life, what is it and is it fattening?

Re: PoPcOrN

Traditional cooking method - have no need of a microwave. Usually serve it with a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popcorn

Popcorn does contain carbs, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. One-fifth of the carbohydrates in popcorn are in the form of dietary fiber, which is good for your overall health. Popcorn is a good example of a high-volume, low-calorie whole grain. If cooked correctly, it makes a healthy snack.

I used to cook popcorn traditionally but don't have it at all now after chomping on a hidden uncooked piece cost me hundreds of pounds in the form of having to have a broken tooth crowned.

Re: PoPcOrN

Thanks for the information Pixi Knuckles and Silver Tabby. I've just had a search to find out what's in it and how to cook it. I managed to find the website below which explains what it is but not how to cook it, I will have to investigate further. Also from the prices on here it's not all that expensive is it, not much more expensive than the porridge I have for breakfast:
