Strawberry popcorn, so called for its color (thankfully, from my point of view, not its flavor), is crisp and incredibly delicious popped. The microwave or stovetop work best--this variety doesn't pop well in hot-air poppers.

    now that is redefining homemade. I thought sorghum was only a southern crop— I love sorghum syrup. A restaurant here mixes it into the butter they serve with cornbread and it is divine. Glad to see you are enjoying the fall fruits of your labor.

    • Vic’s labor. Maybe I’ll make some jam with fruit and sorghum syrup–I could put it on my sorghum/buckwheat flour bread. 🙂

      Good to hear from you–please drop me a line and let me know how A. and MC5 are doing. Aria is a Halloween freak. 😐
