I was looking for matured corn kernels and thought found it at last. I thought it was red corn. I came near and asked how much. It was 20 pesos per pack of 250 grams.
However, the kernels seemed too small for a regular red corn. I am sorry for the lack of knowledge. The real corn identity is popcorn. The vendor told me to make sure a batch does not overcrowd the cooking vessel.
I have never cooked popcorn yet. This was a good opportunity for a trial. It was not hard, I guessed.
The popular method for cooking popcorn is placing the kernels and some oil in casserole, covering and shaking vigorously over strong flame for few minutes.
I did the microwave method instead. No popcorn popper was available in our house. I think buying one for the sake of cooking popcorn is not worth. Microwave is an easier and lazier way to cook it.
No paper bag available. I placed few popcorn kernels in microwavable polypropylene food box, added a little oil and popped it at high setting for three minutes.
