FAIL : Popcorn Sprouts
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar
I bought a 25 lb. bag of organic popcorn last summer. The seeds have dried out to the point that the popcorn no longer pops. When this occurs people call the kernels old maids. I tried sprouting them since my attempts to rehydrate the kernels over night also failed. Sprouting sort of worked. I did get little green shoots, but there was a awful vinegar like smell coming from the sprouts after just a few days that made me toss the batch. Now I'm looking at the remaining 10 lbs of popcorn kernels and wondering what to do with them. These might just be compost.
