Comments from you:
- Tried and they never popped : (
- From where u can get whole sorgum in usa?
- Which cultivars?
- Hi there. No, at this time, we do not sell it already popped. We sell the popping sorghum grain so you can pop it yourself and flavor it as you like.
- Do u sell it already poped.
- As you can see, our Popping Sorghum used in the video is a white variety. We've actually just harvested our first plot of red Popping Sorghum which has been in development (plant breeding) for several years. If you're interested in purchasing some, please send us a message via the contact us form at our website (there's a link in the video description above).
- I understand that the sumac sorghum, followed by the high tannin sorghums,then the black and red are the highest in anti-oxidants. The white sorghum is the lowest. What
kind of sorghum do you use.
- Hi Saleh. In the video I used 2 teaspoons of olive oil (not extra virgin olive oil) and 1/4 cup of popping sorghum.
You don't need to use much oil at all because the grains are so small.
You can use other types of oil. We recommend high temperature oils like peanut, canola, coconut, safflower etc.
- what type of oil do you use and how much?
- Thanks for your comment. :)
Yes, you can absolutely pop Sorghum in the microwave. We do recommend that you use an actual Microwave Popcorn Popper, like the one we sell by NordicWare.
A few extra tips:
1. Sorghum pops best without the use of oil
2. only use 1/4 cup
3. take care of any unpops (just like with microwaved popcorn) as they may not be as toasted as unpops from a pot on the stove.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We're always happy to help.
- Loved the video, could this be done in the microwave?
- That's great! Thanks for letting us know. We love hearing stories like yours. :)
- So cool! I am gluten-free but corn and rice also bothers me and I've just discovered sorghum doesn't so thanks for putting crunchiness back into my life!
- Great response time!
Just bought from you guys =]
- Hi there, thanks for your question!
In the few years since we've posted this video, we've discovered that Popping Sorghum pops better and faster at a slightly higher temperature than we were using.
We now recommend popping on Medium/High which equates to approximately 450oF or 232oC.
Hope that helps! Happy Popping and let me know if you have any more questions. ~Jennie
- Do you know what temperature in Celsius your medium dial is?
would be appreciated.
- You're welcome! I actually added a link to the Description to make it easier for folks to get to the video.
Happy to meet another "ie" Jennie. ;o)
- Thanks!!! I'll check it out!
ps-My name is Jennie too...spelled with an "ie" of course!
- Hi there. Popped Sorghum makes excellent "popcorn" balls! You can make the balls regular size as well - it looks really cool with the tiny popped sorghum.
Not all of the grains will pop, so if you want to sift them out, you could try a colander. It's difficult to find something with holes large enough to let the unpopped grains through but keep back the popped grains.
We do sell a Sorghum Sifter on our website. Check out the video in our Channel of how it works.
Thanks ~ Jennie
- I just ordered ordered some sorghum from justpoppin with the intention of making tiny popcorn balls as appetizers for an open house! Do you find that most of the kernels pop when you make it? If not, do you think a colander with round holes would work for shaking out the unpopped kernels? Also welcome to any other suggestions :-)
