Thanksgiving Popcorn

Happy Thanksgiving! Today with all the cooking that I have to do, I am trying to keep the kids occupied so that they don't totally destroy the house! So, projects it is!! Two months ago we were given from our CSA share, three ears of corn that needed to dry, so eventually it could become popcorn. If you would like to learn more about the growing and harvesting of the corn, visit here From Seed to Snack.

What you will need:
  • Dried corn, specifically for popcorn
  • Bowl
  • Paper towels
  • Lots of strong hands
Since it's just Caleb, Savannah and I, we only really needed one big bowl to share. We each had an ear of corn and just started peeling the corn back against the grain and it really just falls off.

 It took us maybe 15 minutes to get it all done. 

After removing all the seeds removed, all you have left to do is to transfer to a jar or container to store until use!

The kids really had a great time and it was just enough time between basting the turkey!

I hope you all enjoy your popcorn as much as we did!

Happy Thanksgiving,
The Websters
