We have a son with a corn allergy. We heard about sorghum popping on a social media site for people with corn allergies. My son now loves the fact that he can have popcorn again!!
this has been wonderful for my family since we found we have allergies to corn !
missed our pop corn with movies and now we have a delicious substitute
I bought sorghum because I had never tried it before and it is supposed to be very healthy! I really liked it when I cooked it in water like I would cook rice. It's a lot like Israeli couscous. I tried to pop it and that was a diaster! The kernels were super tiny and 1/2 of them burned even though I was stirring them. I watch a YouTube on how to pop them. Maybe my temperature was too high. Seeing the size of the popped kernels so small makes me just want to use the sorghum for the grain. I'll use popcorn for popcorn!
