Mushroom Popcorn Kernels
Mushroom popcorn kernels pop up until a beautifully large mushroom shape.
What is Mushroom Popcorn?
Mushroom popcorn kernels produce firm, round pieces of popcorn with a bit of chewiness. Mushroom popcorn is different from butterfly popcorn which is light and airy, and tends to pop into complicated shapes. Butterfly popcorn is often served in movie theaters, whereas mushroom popcorn is best suited for making kettle corn and other types of candied popcorn, since its round shape makes it ideal for coating in sugar and syrups.
Stove top directions: Preheat 3 tablespoons of oil in a deep pan on medium heat. The best oils to use have a high smoke-point (peanut oil, safflower oil, soy oil, sunflower oil, light olive oil, or coconut oil). When the oil is hot add 1/3c popcorn kernels. Put a lid on the pot and continue to move the pan, or stir the kernels, so that they do not burn. Cook for 2 1/2 min to 4 min or until the pops are 5 seconds apart.
Microwave directions: Mix 1/3 cup of popcorn with 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the kernel and oil mixture to a brown paper bag. Fold over the top of the bag two times and give it a good shake. Cook for 2 1/2 minutes or until the pops are 5 seconds apart.
Oil needs to reach 400 degrees or more to achieve mushroom shape. Oil not heated to the correct temperature will produce butterfly shaped corn.

“We love the mushroom popcorn Kernels; pops up huge and tasty! We also love the Southern Heat Nut/Snack mix for groups of friends or just a quick snack.”

“Thank you so much! Fast delivery. Great products. I have been looking for the mushroom popcorn and could not find it anywhere! Thanks again.”

“The roasted unsalted pistachios were marvelous. The sultanas are lucious. The tiny little white popcorn is cute, but the Mushroom Popcorn, made with a little olive oil and a pat of butter tossed in with the popcorn, is SUPERLATIVE and a must have for popcorn lovers. It's SO good that it can be made in a paperbag in the microwave, airpopped, and full of flavor and texture.
For those who want to know how to do the paperbag trick, get a lunch bag size paper bag, put 2 tablespoons of popcorn, fold the top over twice, then cook on HIGH for about 2 minutes. A full bowl takes 4 bags.
Haven't made either the pizza dough nor the blueberry muffins yet, but am looking forward to making the kids faces light up!”

“Wow fast shipping is true! Ordered monday here tuesday and packed great. All items were of good quality. I opened the goji berries and they were delicious. The diced coconut was sweet and will be wonderful for the coconut cream pie this weekend. Thank you for the great variety and prices. I can not wait to give my father the mushroom popcorn.”

“Super fast delivery even with the package being 20lbs! Made the first batch of mushroom popcorn last night and it was all that we expected. Mostly mushroom popcorns with a few butterflies mixed in. The mushroom popcorns were huge and a hit with the kids! Almost every kernel popped in our 15 year old Westbend stir crazy popper. Not sure how long 20lbs of popcorn will last, but with it being this good, the word is out amongst my kids friends, so I'm sure it'll go very quickly!”

“This popcorn is delicious! It pops up huge, just like they said it would. It's crunchy and flavorful; it actually tastes like corn! Who knew ?!! ”

“Outstanding customer service, I received my order before I hung up the phone. :) I ordered Mushroom Popcorn Kernels and was blown away by how amazingly huge, fluffy, crunchy and scrumptious the popcorn was. Eating any other popcorn would be a crime. Love the entire Nuts.com experience. The packaging is super fun, and ALWAYS a free surprise treat with every order... WHO DOES THAT?!?! What an unexpected, but greatly appreciated gesture. Love being a 'nut'!!!!! Keep up the exquisite work. ”

“Been buying these from Nuts.com for several years, more kernels pop than "name brand" popcorn. Very fresh --I make it in my microwave by using a covered microwave pan and just wetting the kernels first for a 1/2 minute or so, then draining off any remaining water, adding the lid to the one qt sized container and if the lid lets off steam as mine does - then I put a facecloth over it to trap the steam and return it partially to the container which also adds some weight to the plastic container top so it doesn't "blow off" during the popping process. Works like a charm! Then I add pre-melted butter and sprinkle whatever else I want on my popcorn !”
