Normally I'd post a blog post on this but I've been terribly lazy with it so I'll rave her for a bit.

This afternoon I took out a bag of sorghum in my pantry. The package had a recipe for popped sorghum, so I gave it a shot. OMG, it was delicious and didn't stick between my teeth like popcorn.

I immediately took out several other bags of grain and repeated the process. Everything worked.

The process is simple.

Take a pot with a lid (You'll only need a lid for sorghum and buckwheat in my experience) and put it over a high heat for about two minutes. Add 1/4 - 1/2 cup (depending on the size of your pot) of a grain and swirl the pot over the flame. It'll start to crackle within a couple of minutes. When the crackling slows down, pour it into a bowl.

I was surprised how tasty these turned out. I popped a bunch to use as breakfast cereal tomorrow, a great oil-free version of granola. Only the sorghum and buckwheat popped in such a way that they resembled popcorn but everything else popped to create a crunchy treat.

What I popped were

Brown rice,
Wheat berries,

I'm going to try rye and whole oats tomorrow.

Pop away!
