Zea mays everta



Popcorn: a great healthy snack and definitely "local" as it was originally cultivated by Native Americans, but not usually something easy to find in your actual local area.  I eat popcorn at least once a day but only air-popped stovetop popcorn which is naturally high in fiber, low in calories and fat, and free of the sodium, artificial flavourings and carcinogenic packaging that comes with microwave popcorn.  Stovetop can get somewhat annoying and time consuming though so I was excited to find a fun style of locally grown microwave popping corn on the cob at the farmers market!  How rad is that?  Simply insert the cob of popping corn into a brown paper bag and microwave for 2 - 3 mins.  Perfect additive free local microwave popcorn!

  1. I love making popcorn on the stove, it is so much better than microwave. Next time, try addins some cinnamon to the popcorn, it gives it a nice sweetness and is also healthy. :)

    Ali - cinnamon sounds great! I've put all sorts of spices on popcorn but for some reason I've never tried that!
