this is just a random post. random and interesting.
and hopefully you’ll learn something from this.
so. why don’t some popcorn kernels pop?
This happens because those kernels contain leaks or hollows that allow the steam (during popping time) to escape.
Is there anything we can do to stop this?
Yes! You could store the popcorn kernels in an airtight container (and refrigerate, if you’re in warmer country). It can reduce the number of UPK’s (Unpopped Popcorn Kernels)!
