Like all varieties of corn, popcorn is native to the Americas. It was an important part of the Aztec diet, and was also used in ceremonial headdresses, necklaces and ornaments. The oldest popcorn ears found to date were discovered in 1948 in a bat cave in west central New Mexico. The tiny ears were 4,000 years old. Popcorn remains an American dietary institution. And that’s a good thing, because it is an economical, wholesome whole grain food high in fiber, complex carbohydrates and protein! Some of our popcorn is grown utilizing Regenerative Organic farming methods right here on our farm!
Mushroom yellow popcorn differs from our yellow butterfly popcorn as it pops up into more of a ball shape. Many use it for caramel, kettle or other flavored popcorn creations. With flavor or not, in the end it comes down to personal preference and we like it simply salted, too!
