Ten Old Fashioned Varieties of Popcorn
We have homogenized most of the differences and variety out of much of our food. As a result, we tend to think that everything is supposed to look a certain way. It also makes our food supply weaker. One bug or fungus or virus that likes our "normal" variety will leave us without any alternatives.
Here are some popcorn varieties that are different and I think are better than Orville Redenbacher or our other "generic" popcorns. They are from Amish Country Popcorn. I've tried most of them and I don't need salt or butter beyond the butter I put in the bottom of the popper (1 Tablespoon).
I buy it from my hardware store, but they are online at: https://amishcountrypopcorn.com/
1. Medium Yellow
2. Rainbow - they call it a Unique Blend.
I haven't tried this yet
They say it is the smallest of the hulless
This popcorn looks black, but I think pops white and is "Just a Little Sweeter" than your ordinary corn
5. Medium White
This is hulless
This type pops in a ball
This looks purple unpopped and they say that is is tender, less hulls, more flavor, higher in antioxidants
This version is a burgundy red. They say it has fewer hulls
9. Baby White
This version is extra small and tender. When I popped it, I thought it would be hard to eat. I expected a lot of hulls and not much fluff. But this was my favorite. It was like eating mini-popcorn.
