“Assessment of Kernel Characteristics to Predict Popping Performance in Grain Sorghum” with Kent Mitchell
Popping sorghum is a niche alternative to popcorn, with no large hulls, a neutral flavor, and smaller kernels. While the tasty snack is growing in popularity, much remains to be learned about the practices that can produce the best popping product. This episode, Mitchell discusses his research on finding the best production practices, commercial varieties, and popping quality traits for this up-and-coming snack time star.
