I made some fresh popcorn today in an iron kettle. We use it as an inexpensive breakfast cerial.
However, when carried on the trail a lot of all ready popped corn can take up a lot of room, so I personally would like to carry loose corn and pop it in camp. I am going to try growing some this year and do some experimenting. I don't want to have to carry a clay pot about with me, that is not practical. I can't use my tin lined kettle because I could damage the tin lining. I don't know how much heat it can take without liquid in it. So I am going to have to come up with another natural method. Perhaps heated rocks in a earthen hole covered with sticks? Sounds like it might be a goer.
