The love of popcorn is nothing new. The history of popcorn consumption stretches back more than 5,000 years. Archaeologists and researchers believe that popcorn is the oldest of a group of five sweet corns that include Indian corn, pod corn, sweet corn, and field corn. Popcorn was a New World food, originally grown in Mexico — popcorn ears more than 5,600 years old were found in the Bat Cave in New Mexico half a century ago, before spreading globally through India, China and Sumatra long before the first European explorers reached our shores.
The apple crumble needs no introduction. As the days shorten, it is the pudding our hearts yearn for. Sweet, stewed apples, topped off in a deep dish with sugar-heavy crumble and just a little more sugar sprinkled on top for good measure.
