Trivia in the Kitchen, Number Nineteen!

Do you only eat popcorn at the movies (or when watching the movies at home)?  While I would guess that this is the predominant venue for the consumption of popcorn, I remember a couple of other options (around Christmas time): popcorn balls as well as stringed popcorn (for trimming the tree).  Did you know that popcorn was an important food to the ancient Aztec Indians (Mexico) where it was used as ornamentation in ceremonial necklaces and headdresses.  And, because if resembled flowers, popcorn was also used to thank the Aztec gods of rain and fertility!
