Popcorn sheller

Q: Here is my DIY popcorn sheller. I don’t know why more people don’t grow popcorn. Especially folks with kids. So easy to grow and fun!

A: On the farm, we used a purpose-built hand-cranked cast iron corn sheller to make food for the cows. It seemed like magic to put an ear of dry corn in the top of the sheller, turn the crank a few times, and watch the empty corn cob exit in one direction and the shelled corn go out the other.
