Pop corn can be traced back as the 1500.

The main reason popcorn pops was clarified by native Aztecs. There are spirits who reside within the kernels of popcorn. As you heat these spirits houses, they get mad. Finally, the spirits get so mad they pop out of there houses as miserable little puffs of steam.

Evidently, this was folk lore and we’ve since found scientifically how popcorn pops. It’s relatively straightforward. Within the kernel is a soft patch of starch with approximately 14% moisture. The moisture is comprised by kernels hard outer shell.

With no moisture, pop corn won’t pop. The ideal way to store popcorn is air tight containers and kept in a cool place like your cabinet or pantry.

Finally the hard surface gives way and the popcorn explodes. The soft heated peppers burst, turning in out side.

Bear in mind a fridge can most likely dry out your popcorn. If you realize that your pop corn has dried out, you can rejuvenate them and can make them pop. It takes around three days but the water will re moisturize the kernel and that will cause the kernels to pop.
