Early Money for Popcorn

The colonists and their friends enjoyed popcorn so much that they came up with a way to make it without the help of sugar. They mixed it with milk and cream, but not with milk. The Colonists were the first to really enjoy delectable popcorn thus forming what was to become known as the popcorn.

Colonists did not invent popcorn. The Native Americans had popcorn long before the Colonists were invented corn. Even though the original popcorn was not much more than a cantaloupe or a grape, the Colonists made it a little more palatable by adding sugar and milk.

The First Popcorn Gift

Popcorn was sent as a gift in the Colonies by the Native Americans. It was a gift of choice for dinner and many a,-year-old child gobbled up the popcorn thus becoming a familiar snack to the colonists.

As time went on, the Colonists discovered that if the popcorn was dried and salted it would last almost indefinitely. This was especially true if the Colonists immersed the popcorn in salt water before eating it. The curing and smoking process preserved the flavor and gave the popcorn its yellow color.

In Colonial America Popcorn Was a Luxury Food

Popcorn was a luxury and a carefully guarded culinary secret. Only wealthy families could afford to eat popcorn moulded into a form of pastry. EVEN BEFORE THE POPULAR POPcorn MIXLE was discovered, the colonial Americans of the 17th century would feast on a sweetened form of popcorn called popcorn yams.

The lading of tea at the time was a truly glorious event and this was a welcome addition to the colonial embrace of tea. The colonists celebrated lengthy meals of popcorn and other delectable foods.

And where did they dine? The answer is not pinpointed in either time period, but we do know that the Native Americans Frootailed and the pioneers dined on a similar, savory soup called cauldron corn.
