How to Make Popcorn, Part 1

Isn't corn a genetically altered crop anyway? I believe that the corn as we know it has been altered over thousands of years.

I never thought to pop 2-3 kernels first. Thanks for the tip!

Yes, I guess all domesticated AND wild foods are genetically altered in some fashion.

However, I'd prefer if the altering was done by Mother Nature or selective breeding.

Monsanto's Roundup Ready crops--which have been genetically engineered to be tolerant to Monsanto's Roundup herbicide--are a perfect example of the genetic altering we don't need.
