Popcorn is harvested but not ready to eat

Popcorn on the cob

Popcorn on the cob

Well we harvested and gave away the sweet corn faster than we could take a picture of it, but lucky for us popcorn is not ready to eat when its harvested so we were able to snap a photo of these beautiful ears of corn. Popcorn must stay on the corn stalk as long as possible, because you actually want the corn to dry out on the cob as much as possible. We’ve left some to dry on the stalk and we harvested some today to dry out by leaving in a basket in the Intervale Green Community Room. Apparently we should take a couple of kernels off the cob each week and try and pop it in a pot with some oil. In the beginning, the popped corn with be chewy. When it pops and has that nice light crunch then its ready to harvest the rest! Check back with us in a few weeks to see how it tastes.
