Very Special Grain ... or Is It Vegetable?

Posted by David on 4/11/2014
Corn is an interesting grain. And a vegetable, but it's mostly a grain. Just think about how versatile corn is as a grain. Ora vegetable, but mostly a grain. It can be a vegetable used as a side dish with a family dinner. It can come on the cob or off it. It can also be used to make cornbread which can go well with many different meal options.

Popcorn: One of the Healthiest Snacks Around

Popcorn is undeniably a mainstay of household cupboards and microwave ovens, to say nothing of its coveted status in the movie industry. We love it natural, drenched in butter, coated in cheese or chocolate, and served in bags, buckets or tins.

With this new finding, popcorn has just become more than a snack that you eat by default before plopping down the couch for hours of sitcom rerun.
