I disremember when we harvested, early Oct. I think. We had a very wet year last year, but we had 10 or 12 ears from it. We picked them into that plastic blue tray & they stayed on the kitchen corner for a couple of months until they migrated out onto the school table where they sat for a couple of more months. By this time we had the wood stove going pretty regularly & I knew they were dry, but as it gets so dry in our living room I figured all of the moisture content required in the kernels for popping had evaporated. When we got low on store popcorn though, I figured nothing was gained if not tried. SO:
There was so much chaff I deemed it wise to try out winnowing so as to not set our air popper on fire.
The tension rises... does it work?
