Popcorn: more than a snack

There is no end to the uses of popcorn.  Nutritionally, it is one of the best all-around snack foods, providing 67% as much protein, 110% as much iron and as much calcium as an equal amount of beef.   An average 1.5-ounce serving of popcorn supplies the same energy as two eggs; and a cup of unbuttered popcorn contains less calories than half a medium grapefruit. In addition, hull is excellent roughage, comparing favorably with bran flakes or whole wheat toast.

1. POPPING CORN is NOT genetically modified!
2. Grind it to make corn meal to bake with!
3. Feed small live stock including chickens
4. EASIEST thing to store

Popping Corn, Premium Popcorn, Store brand, name brand ~ It's mostly all the same. Buy as much as you can, as cheap as you can and add it to your stockpile today. The single easiest way to store popcorn, is in clean, dry,  recycled 2 liter bottles.

"You, Too, Should Discover Dried Corn" in Mother Earth News, once corn is thoroughly dried on the cob, it can be shelled and then ground in a grain mill to produce cornmeal.  However, DID YOU KNOW...Popping corn can be substituted if you don’t grow your own corn? Sure can.  Home-milled cornmeal has better flavor and retains more vitamins and minerals than commercial cornmeal with the germ removed before processing. Home-milled cornmeal must be stored in the refrigerator to prevent the natural oil from becoming rancid so in a survival scenario, only grind as much as you intend to use.  Dried corn can be used to make hominy, and hominy in turn is the basis for grits, corn tortillas, and many other recipes.

Add it to your stockpile too.
