Glass Gem Popcorn

We decide to try and compare popcorn that we grew from our garden versus name brand from the grocery stores. We used the scientific method to completely compare the differences. The results were clear as day.

Glass Gem corn is not made for popping like other brands. In the end we used a stir crazy pop corn maker to quickly pop the corn. If you want to know how to make popcorn then use a stir crazy popcorn maker and you will not be disappointed. I love all kinds of pop corn and even kettle corn.

We used coconut on our popcorn recipe and get better results and flavor with it. Now stop reading and watch the video for some popcorn time.

Glass Gem Corn

On June 22nd, We harvested our Glass Gem Corn from our urban garden. These corn seeds were given to us to grow from a fellow you-tuber named Robin Simmons. This unique corn is different colored on each kernel and each cob is uniquely different from the next. The rainbow color is vibrant and eye chillingly beautiful.

The corn became popular in 2012 when a picture was posted on Facebook and it when viral. The gemcorn was developed by a native American Indian trying to find his heritage thru agriculture. A friend named Schoen then was able to get the seeds and grew a little each year until today we have this Rainbow Corn, or Glass Gem Corn.

This glass gem seed will be used to make popcorn, it is a flint corn, for our family. We will also be giving away some to spread the heritage of the Indian culture. My wife and kids are registered Cherokee and I want to keep their heritage alive by passing down seeds to the next generation of non gmo corn.
