The corn sheller
Shucking, or shelling kernels from the small strawberry popcorn cobs
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.
Sorghum canes will be cut and boiled to extract their “sugar” for syrup. A tall, attractive grain, sorghum makes a nice summer ornamental.
