No that's not pop corn that's popped sorghum. Much like corn, sorghum is also a grass, but unlike corn, sorghum is not omnipresent in the typical American's diet. Sorghum is a grain and if you haven't had it, you should try it and break out of your quinoa heavy diet. Oh and did I mention that it's gluten free?
What are those tiny beads? They're actually sorghum syrup, which is a lot like molasses, but has more complex flavor and isn't as heavy.
If you're looking for some sorghum I recommend going with Bob's Red Mill.
Do you need Bourbon Barrel Aged Sorghum Syrup? Probably not, but should you get some? Absolutely! I recommend going with Oak and Salt.
Popped Sorghum with Sorghum
- 1/2 cup Sorghum Grain
- 1 teaspoon Sorghum Syrup
- FInishing Salt
- 1 Brown Paper Lunch Bag
- 1 Staple
- Place the sorghum grain in the paper bag.
- Fold it close and staple it shut.
- Place in microwave and run on the popcorn setting. Don't worry that one staple is going to be fine in your microwave.
- Once the grains have stopped popped remove from bag and place in a bowl.
- Drizzle the sorghum syrup over the popped sorghum and top with your favorite finishing salt. Eat with a spoon (it's sticky) or pour milk over it and eat as a cereal. Enjoy!
