Homemade Popcorn

So who knew that you could buy tiny cobs of popcorn kernels?? Our family didn't know, but during our exploration of the pumpkin patch, we discovered we could buy our own cobs, knock all the kernels off, and pop them in our air-popper machine.  We all had a lot of fun... de-cobbing (my own word!), watching it pop, then, the best part, eating it up!!

It was a little harder to de-cob :) than we thought it would be!

it was blowing hot air out!!

It's starting to pop!!!

What was left when we were done... they were soft and fuzzy!


He really liked it... even though he looks confused!


  1. He most diffently has a Goodwin/Shell look!! LOVE IT!!

  2. I was wondering, does it taste the same as store bought popcorn?

  3. It tastes the same to me... my husband and one of the boys liked it better than microwave... my oldest one didn't like it as much because it wasn't COVERED in butter! :)
