Popped Sorghum
When I first saw this idea, I had to try it just to see if it really worked. It really does work, and my popcorn-loving kids think it tastes just like “regular” popcorn. The kernels are simply smaller.
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Sorghum Grain
  • Toppings as desired
Instructions
  1. Stove top method: Heat a stainless steel pot with a tight fitting lid over medium-high heat. When hot, add the sorghum grains and cover with a lid. Cook, shaking the pot often, until the sorghum grains begin to pop. Remove from the heat when there is more than a few seconds between pops. Season with toppings, as desired.
  2. Microwave method: Place sorghum grains in a clean, lunch-size, brown paper bag. Fold the top down to close, and place the folded side down in microwave. Heat on high for 2 – 3 minutes (varies depending on microwave’s strength; check a little early the first time so as not to burn). Remove from the microwave when there is more than a few seconds between pops. Season with toppings as desired.
