Corn was first domesticated over 9,000 years ago in what is now known as Mexico. Archaeologists discovered that the people have known about popcorn for thousands of years. In Mexico, there are remnants of popcorn that have been found that date back to around 3600 BC. The popping of corn kernels was later achieved by hand on stovetops through the 19th century. Corn kernels were sold on the East Coast of the United States under the names of Pearls or Nonpareil. The term of popped corn first appeared in John Russell Bartlett’s 1848 Dictionary of the Americanisms. Popcorn is an ingredient that is found in Cracker Jack, and in the early years of the recipe, it was popped by hand. Each kernel of popcorn that is popped contains a certain amount of moisture and oil. Unlike most other types of grains, the outer hull of the popcorn kernel is both strong and also impervious to moisture and the starch inside which consists almost entirely of a hard type. As the oil and the water within the popcorn kernel are heated, they turn that moisture in the popcorn kernel into pressurized steam. Under these perfect conditions, the starch inside the kernel gelatinizes, then softens, and becomes pliable. The internal pressure of the entrapped steam in the kernel continues to increase until the breaking point of the hull is reached.
