Cornude Artisan Popcorn
Here is a taste association test.
When you think of amaretto, or Belgian chocolate, or chipotle chillies and Aleppo peppercorns, what other foods do you think of?
What about marshmallow, or roasted garlic, or maple and pecan nuts?
Chances are that you think of the obvious things – amaretto biscuits, and roast garlic chicken, and pecan pie.
But Ruth Ormiston of Cornude, doesn’t think like that. When Ms Ormiston thinks of these flavours and ingredients, she is thinking towards one single goal: can you make popcorn with them? Can you make masala popcorn? Or marshmallow popcorn? Or seaweed and caramel popcorn?
And you know what? Ruth can make popcorn with all of these wonderful things. She makes Belgian chocolate popcorn. She makes popcorn with chipotle chilli and Aleppo pepper. She makes peanut butter and caramel crunch popcorn.
Ms Ormiston is one of those radical culinary figures who is making us re-think what we think when we think about popcorn. Cornude popcorn is not the junk you buy in the cineplex. It is top quality corn with top-quality ingredients used as flavourings.
People, Cornude popcorn is a health food. It is good for you. And it is indubitably delicious.
