The popcorn blast

We started off with 537 popcorn kernels. 60 popcorn kernels didn't pop on the oil. We turned the element on medium heat and added our kernels in. We also added some oil and watched patiently as our kernels popped. It took about 5 minutes for it to start popping though.

We learnt that inside the hull of the kernel, there is some starch and a droplet of water. Nevertheless, we carried on with our procedure. The pot started vibrating, indicating that the popping was off to a good start. We moved the pot around eagerly waiting for all of the kernels to pop. After around 2-3 minutes, we turned off the heat and took the pot off the element. It was served on some paper towels. It was fun doing this with Finn, Mya, Harikoa and Tyler.
