How to make it

  • Place a dry, medium skillet, that has a tight fitting lid, on medium heat, on the stovetop and allow it to heat up.
  • Pour about 2 tablespoon of amaranth grains in the hot skillet at a time.
  • Cover the pan with the lid and quickly swirl the gains on the pan.
  • Continuously swirl the pan over the stovetop and eventually the gains of amaranth will begin to pop.
  • It is sometimes necessary to adjust the heat on the stove to get the amaranth to pop and not burn.
  • Usually the amaranth will puff very quickly.
  • It might take a couple tries the first time so don't give up right away.
  • Make sure that once the amaranth seems to have completely puffed that you immediately remove it from the pan into a dry bowl to stop the cooking.
  • Amaranth will easily burn once it is puffed so it is important to move quickly. The process is basically like this : pour, cover, swirl, pour, repeat.
  • Good luck.
  • Enjoy.
