Have you ever tried to take your summer time corn on the cob and pop it to make popcorn?  If so, you most likely had many failed attempts.  Believe it or not, there is only one kind of corn that produces Popcorn!  However, there are different strains of this one type of corn and therefore it can yield many varieties.  

  • Butterfly kernels - these are fluffy little pieces of popcorn that you will find in home popping kits, concession stands and movie theaters.  It pops tender and fluffy and is has many "wings."  These irregularities in texture are great for catching seasonings such as salts, powdered cheeses and other toppings.

  • Mushroom kernels - kinda misleading as they don't taste like mushrooms, lol, but instead have a rounded top like a mushroom and are best used for candies and caramelized popcorn flavors.  They are more dense than the butterfly kernels and hold up well through the caramelizing process.
