The folks at Tiny But Mighty Popcorn sent me several bags of their heirloom popcorn kernels. I was surprised just how small the kernels were.
For comparison, I decided to take a picture of a few popcorn kernels and then took another picture after they were popped. The kernel on the left came from a bag of TBM popcorn and the kernel on the right is from a generic bag of microwave popcorn.
The picture below the kernels is what they look like after I popped them.
To pop up my first batch of TBM popcorn I used a full cup of kernels. And, there were only a few kernels that didn’t pop. I seasoned it with a little salt and pepper and began tasting. It only took me a few minutes to eat the entire bowl of popcorn. These little kernels pop up to a wonderful tasting popcorn and the crunch is awesome. And, after consuming an entire bowl I didn’t need to floss. Thanks to the folks at TBM I have a nice supply that should last me a few weeks.
If you enjoy popping your own popcorn Tiny But Mighty Popcorn is a must try. Don’t be fooled by the size of the kernel ~ this popcorn is delicious!!
