Carrots-1 pound

Sage-1 bunch

Pop Corn-6 ears

To pop real pop corn from the cob take the kernels from the cob.  Start at one end and make path.  The kernels next to the opening will pop off a little easier.  Put about a tablespoon of oil in a pan with a lid.  Do not forget the lid!  Heat the oil and pour in 1/2 cup of kernels.  Keep the pan on medium high until the popping starts.  I usually turn the heat down a little once the kernels really start to pop.  Remove from the heat once the popping stops.  Add melted butter and salt or what ever you like on pop corn.  What a treat. I have heard that you can pop the kernels in a paper bag in the micro wave but have never tried.  There is just something really wonderful about popping the corn on the stove.  Pop corn will keep for a very long time on the cob or off.  A member just wrote that they just popped the corn from last season and it was great.
