Connecticut Invention of the Day. Happy Popcorn Month!

October is National Popcorn month! Here’s a “Cooking Utensil” patented by Perl Butler of Weatogue Connecticut back in 1918. Maybe not as easy as sticking a bag in a microwave and walking away for two or three minutes, this tool simply requires you to place the unpopped kernels in the pan, close the lid then proceed to hold it “over the blaze” according to the patent application.

If that’s too much work for you there is Dague Popcorn a company in Connecticut that makes gourmet popcorn for you in some pretty tempting flavors….
