A Close Look at Popcorn

(YouTube link)

This video is from NPR’s series Click to Enlarge, but in this case, you must heat to enlarge, because we’re popping popcorn! Get an up close look inside to see what makes a popcorn kernel pop, and afterward, we examine what the edible stuff looks like under a microscope. After watching this, you might want to get out the big kettle and pop some yourself. You know you want some. Oh right, nowadays you do it in the microwave. How to pop corn properly in a heavy kettle is a lesson for another day. -via Daily of the Day

Just had a bowl for supper last night! I put finely grated cheese on mine- you know, so there's some protein with all that starch! ;)
