Corn is one of the oldest known foods because humans have been cultivating it for thousands of years.
Corn can be eaten in many ways. Boiled corn is very tasty and can be added to salads and stews. Grilled corn on the cob with a little salt and butter is also delicious. Roasted corn is used to make cornflakes and other breakfast cereals. Finally, if dried and ground, the result is an ideal flour for making bread and pancakes.
But without a doubt the most popular way to enjoy this cereal is in the form of popcorn. Making them is very easy and fun so here is the recipe in case you want to try. Do not forget that for this you must have the help of an adult, okay?
HOMEMADE POPCORN RECIPE:
Put a little oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add a handful of popcorn (it is important that it is this type of corn because it is the only one that explodes) and then a little salt. Cover the pan with a lid so that the popcorn does not jump around the kitchen and if you can, choose one that is transparent to see the transformation of the corn kernels live. Quite a show!
In a couple of minutes, when the silence falls, you’ll have a pile of warm, crunchy popcorn ready to eat.
