Popcorn
#1
Seeing as though this is the <i>pop</i> culture forum, I thought I'd make a post about popcorn. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

Recently, I read a blog entry about pot popcorn. That is, popcorn that you make in a saucepan.

I never realised how easy it was to make popcorn without a microwave. I just made some for lunch (I had gazpacho too!) and it was delicious.

Any popcorn fans here? What are your favourite toppings?

not a big fan of the kind that gives you lung cancer

it's hard to enjoy popcorn when your body is devouring itself from the inside out

How does popcorn give you lung cancer? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wakaranai.gif[/img]

A kind of cheese-flavored powder put on popcorn apparently caused lung cancer if you were exposed to it over a long period of time.

My mum used to make popcorn for us in a pot with a glass lid so we could stand on a chair and watch, I have that memory from a time that I was too young to remember much else.

Yeah but I had it with soup yo. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/butbut.gif[/img] Apparently, popcorn, when prepared in a healthy way, has the same nutritional qualities as other cereals. This Yahoo Answers page is surprisingly helpful.

DKD: Part of the reason I'm into pot popcorn is to avoid those nasty artificial flavours.

When pot seeds are popped, aren't there usually a lotta sparks?
I know that happens in joints with lots of seeds. This is just something I've heard somewhere [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r.gif[/img]

then there's the small size of the popped pot seeds. Must have to eat a ton of 'em, ne?

Hemp oil in the seeds is filled with nutrients though and they are quite tasty. If you happen to find some, eat 'em or plant 'em, don't smoke 'em.

Why did you buy seedy pot anyways? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

Uhhhh...it was <i>given</i> to me.... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r.gif[/img] actually, back in high school ALL pot had seeds, at least til the advent of other, more potent, seedless varieties.

Did I ever feel old reading the first post in this thread - when I was a kid, there were no microwaves, and popping the popcorn on the stove in a pot was the only way to do it!

The local farmers market has a booth with fresh popped kettlecorn every Saturday. Mmmmm...

I'm a big fan of 10 year old tricolored popcorn that comes in those big aluminum bins. I'm not joking...

Something about the aging process that does it for you?

I don't get why the popcorn is 10yrs old. Is it "aged" before it's sold, or do you just leave it lying around for 10yrs after buying it, then eat it?

Not a big fan of popcorn because after I have some, I always end up feeling like it's all I've eaten all day...like my whole body is oozing popcorniness. It's prolly just indigestion...
