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.

“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!”

“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. ”

“The Mushroom Popcorn kernels are far & away the best popcorn kernels we have ever purchased. Amazing, huge, delicious, yum, yum, yum! (and of course enough can't be said about the wonderful customer service at nuts.com!)”

“I received my cheddar powdered cheese and some mushroom popcorn. I was actually expecting just a plastic bag like the ones normally seen in bulk stores etc. and I was pleasantly surprised to get heavy duty packaging with zip closures for easy storing. The popcorn is Awesome!!! I made a batch for my children and sprinkled the cheese on it and they gobbled it right up. I do have to say I was unfamiliar making the mushroom breed of corn but after some research figured out what I was doing wrong. Oil needs to be super sizzling hot for the kernels to really get that burst. Hope this helps anyone who may have had a difficult time getting those nice big round pieces of yumalicious popcorn. :) I would also like to say thank you for the sample of chia seeds. I can't wait to try them in my cereal. ”
