Through a ton of technologies, modern cinemas have successfully pulled people back to their screens. Allowing different features that enhance vision and sound for the film, these entertainment centers have successfully created an enormous revenue. One of these places’ main attractions is their concession stands, where you can avail of different eatable items to enjoy while still watching your desired film.

Among these, popcorn quickly rose to the top. Popcorn is arguably one of the most popular snacks for a movie. Many people would look at you with suspicious eyes if you didn’t buy even a small popcorn box to eat while you watch the film. It has merely become the tradition of going to a cinema or when watching a movie alone.

But there are times when one can’t see one of his most-awaited movies on time. Due to any reason, he has to miss out on all the shows available and has to sit at home and watch it on his television or laptop. Often, people miss the optional service of snacks available for them before the movie starts.

With proper technique and some skill, it is not impossible to make popcorn at home. People can make better and tastier popcorn than most cinemas offer at their stands. By understanding the basics and following some simple guidelines, it is possible to enjoy these snacks at home with your favorite movies in a better taste.

Basic Knowledge about Popcorn Kernels A popcorn kernel consists of three parts: a hull, the germ, and the endosperm, which contains starch. When heated, the moisture within the endosperm converts into steam. This heat exerts pressure on the hull, which bursts and flips the entire kernel inside out. That is when you hear the sound of the popcorn, “popping.”

As the moisture is what pops the kernels, it is vital to keep unused ones in an airtight container or dry out and take a longer time to pop.

Choosing the Appropriate Popcorn Kernel Whatever their type be, they will always pop into uneven snowflake shapes. There are usually two types of kernels: the butterfly and the snowflake ones. While the color of the kernel’s hull could be any, the starch always gives a yellow or white color.

Keep in mind that there is no need to cut back on the quality of the popcorn kernel.
