Heirloom 'Glass Gem' Decorative Popcorn
We all need a little magic in our lives! Here's a fun way to dress up your Thanksgiving table and then have a healthy snack afterwards! Our decorative, family-grown popcorn is both beautiful to admire AND delicious to eat!
This native, heirloom variety of corn, called 'Glass Gem', lives up to its name and then some! With countless color variations on a single ear, it is utterly mesmerizing. Olive green, pale rose, icy blue, luminous gold, ruby red, mother of pearl, navy...yes even NAVY!! No two kernels are alike! Nature is so darn cool!
Might we suggest placing a pretty ear of corn on each guest's plate at the Thanksgiving table? Or perhaps you'd like to tuck some of those pearlescent cobs into your Thanksgiving centerpiece orders to surprise your customers with a new twist on the traditional mums and pumpkins.
The best part about this gorgeous colorful corn is that it's POPCORN! And you can pop our corn right on the ear right in the microwave! As if kids weren't smitten enough with the rainbow of colors in this corn...show them it popping right on the cob and it'll pretty much blow their minds! Adults too!
Simply place an entire ear of corn in the included brown paper bag and microwave on high for 3+ minutes or until the popping slows to a crawl. While the entirety of the ear is unlikely to pop, many of the kernels will burst into delicious little white puffs you can pluck right off the cob to pop into your mouth! A great magic trick for kids!
This corn was grown on our family farm, Love Land Farm, in central Pennsylvania. Five generations of Loves have worked this farm in the fertile foothills of the Appalachian mountains. Recently the farm has come into a heartbreaking transition, just like so many small family-run farms that have gotten steamrolled by Big Ag ruining the food economy. Myself, my brothers and our father are collaborating on this new popcorn crop in an effort to save our farmland. So many of the farms in our narrow mountain valley have already been auctioned off. We're determined not to let that happen to ours.
So as you gather for the holidays, be thankful for Nature's painterly talents and family that sticks together through thick and thin!
And eat more popcorn!
Please note, these ears of popcorn are not "perfect". There will be some ears where the end is missing or some kernels have fallen off during the harvest process.
EACH GIFT BAG CONTAINS FOUR (4) to FIVE (5) EARS OF DECORATIVE POPCORN IN A HAND-STAMPED COTTON BAG. COLOR AND SIZE VARY WIDELY FROM EAR TO EAR OF CORN. A BROWN PAPER BAG WILL BE INCLUDED FOR EASY POPPING.
