About Popping Corn
Authentic Hawke's Bay organic popcorn is sourced directly from the farmer who has been certified organic for nearly a century. The soil on which he grows his popcorn is nutrient-rich, and no artificial fertilisers or pesticides are used. After popping your kernels with your favorite oil, you'll have an energy-boosting snack that is rich in healthy fats and lauric acid. Play around with different oils and seasonings to find the right flavor for you. Besides being a healthy alternative to chips, popcorn is a great snack for movie nights and the kids lunchbox.
Uses for Popcorn
Put two tablespoons of oil in the bottom of a pot and add about a 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels, then cover it and cook on medium heat. Once you hear that popping sound start up, turn the heat down and shake the pot regularly to prevent burning of any kernels and help them all pop. Remove the pot from the heat when the popping sound stops. Enjoy this tasty, guilt-free snack by mixing in your favorite sweet or savoury flavors to the popcorn. Experiment with different flavours. We love a sprinkle of nutritional yeast with a little smoked paprika. For a sweet twist try dusting a little organic icing sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup.
