GL Popcorn Mais Box for sprouting or growing to make popcorn. UK Only
GL1 - The kernals on this corn variety are smaller and are used to make popcorn. After harvest, dry the cobs and remove the kernals, melt a layer of butter/oil until it just starts to smoke. Turn down the heat, add a layer of corn and remember to cover. Shake occasionally and when the popping has stopped serve with either salt, or coat with melted sugar to taste. 5 grams. 130-160cms tall. Rich in starch and has a modest content of vitamin A. Good source of energy. Sow Apr-end Jun.
Also great for sprouting shoots. This is one of those things that you come across every now and then. Even being in the business for 20 years and in the food business since I was a child, i'd never heard of popcorn sprouts.
The first thing is, it is best to do them without soil, in the same way you'd grow sprouts normally, in a sprouter using clean water twice a day. Some people do this in the dark and others with lights, but the result is a supersweet sprout, fresh, corny (is that a thing?) and of course like all raw foods, really good for you.
