Crimson Popping Corn
Quantity in Basket: None
Code: 3POP
Price: $3.75
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds

Nearly hulless and 100% delicious, this rare and wonderful popcorn pops up as white as snow and delivers a flavor like no other! The naturally red kernels can be made with a traditional stove-top popper or even with a hot-air machine or microwave. 

A favorite for the kids and the grown-ups alike!

 Comments from a few of our fans:

"My favorite is Rancho Gordo red crimson popping corn. (I wish it popped red, but sadly it turns white with heat.) I haven’t been able to get it for an entire year, but I just discovered that it’s back in stock, and I can't stop making it.  This is popcorn with minimal husk, and it actually tastes like corn. Pop it on the stove-top in a little neutral oil, drizzle with real melted butter, and finish with smoked paprika and salt. Or grate some Parmesan or cheddar cheese over the top (it clings). Refreshingly straightforward. Totally addictive."
-Ruth Reichl,

"...if you really want to go all out, check out the crimson popcorn at Rancho Gordo."
-Mark Bittman, Bitten, New York Times

"Simply a must for popcorn connoisseurs, the nearly hull-less crimson kernels pop up beautifully white and have a great flavor."
- Lora Zurubin, Los Angleles Times Magazine

Our popcorn is best made the traditional way with a pan, a lid and some oil but you'll get fine results in an air-popper, but with a lower yield of fully popped corn.

There are countless ways to enjoy it, with just salt and butter, perhaps cooked in some duck fat, topped with Parmesan cheese.

Excellent popcorn, better, and way more reasonably priced, than the other fancy gourmet popcorn I was buying. I will stick with this from now on.

This is the best popcorn we have ever had. While we were waiting for it to come back in stock we tried many other varieties & nothing came close....

Wow! I have never had popcorn like this before. Popcorn sold by "gourmet" popcorn shops doesn't even come close to these tender and fluffy white kernels! I popped some in my Presto Air Popper and except for four or five kernels that the popper blew out before popping, all of the kernels popped. And I don't have any hulls stuck in my teeth! I will definitely order more of this. I waited a long time for it to be stocked, but it was well worth the wait.

This is the best popcorn on the market! I order it in bulk and will not buy anything else.

Hands down best popcorn I have tried!! I had a couple of great years but it's been awhile now. I've been on the waiting list for too long. Please say it's coming back. So sad to get hooked on something so delicious and not be able to eat it. No other popcorn even comes close....
