They recommend their Crimson Jewell kernels for air poppers because they are somewhat larger than black kernels. The smaller black kernels are lighter in weight and may work well in an air popper, but if your air popper is extra forceful they can blow out before they get hot enough to pop.
Popping With Oil:
Oil poppers work well for both Crimson Jewell and Black Jewell popcorn. Whether you are using an electric oil popper, range top popper, or a heavy pan on the stove, start by lightly coating the surface with the oil of your choice. Try using different oils for a little variety in your popcorn flavor! Wait until the oil is extremely hot, and then add enough popcorn to cover the bottom of the container. When the popping has slowed and almost stopped, immediately remove the popcorn from the popper or pan.
One of the newest ways to pop popcorn is using a microwave popper. Most microwave poppers can be used with or without oil. This popper works best with a higher wattage microwave and is a great way to pop popcorn without using oil. Poppers with the paper disc in the bottom tend to produce the best results. The paper disc has special strips that help the kernels heat very quickly, enhancing the popping capabilities of the kernels.
About Black Jewell
In the mid 1960's a small company popped up in Southern Illinois. It was a popcorn company selling 2 pound bags of popcorn to local stores and supermarkets. These kernels weren't the typical yellow kernels that you normally see-they were black. The black kernels popped snow white with very few hulls left after popping and were delicious! Very soon this company was harvesting popcorn in the fall and selling out by Christmas. They soon realized it was time to get things popping, and Black Jewell Popcorn was born.
Over the years, Black Jewell has grown from a small company with a local presence to selling black and crimson kernels all over the country. The company may have changed in size, but their standards have not. Black Jewell is still a family owned company that cares about and stands behind their product.
So what makes Black Jewell popcorn so much better? Black Jewell refuses to settle for anything but the best. All of the corn is carefully inspected to ensure only the cleanest, highest quality kernels make it into the plant. The kernels are then sent through a pre-cleaning process to filter out any unwanted field corn or seeds that can affect the flavor of the popcorn. After pre cleaning, the corn is taken into the plant a batch at a time to be further cleaned and tested. When the kernels are finally clean and the moisture is just right, they are bottled, boxed, and shipped.
