Popped Sorghum Balls

Since finding our new love, Sorghum, I've been creating. Sorghum is a seed very similar in characteristic to corn - something we really miss. After trying expensive store-bought popped sorghum and not being able to get it again, I found and ordered sorghum seeds from an online source. We now has pop"corn" in miniature! Taking it a step further, we now have corn-free pop"corn" balls.

Popped Sorghum Balls


  • 1/2 cup honey (know your source to keep un-corny)

  • 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice sugar

  • 1 tablespoon butter + some to coat hands

  • 3/4 cup unpopped sorghum seeds


Pop seeds with an air popper or in a covered skillet lightly buttered/oiled on medium high heat. Set aside popped seeds. You'll get about 5 cups of popped Sorghum.

In a 2-quart microwave safe bowl, combine honey, sugar & butter. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high 5-7 minutes (until sugar is dissolved). This can also be done on the stovetop.

Pour honey mixture over popped Sorghum and stir with a wooden spoon to coat and set aside to cool.

Butter hands and form into balls while still slightly warm. Approach the bottom of the bowl with caution as it will be hotter than the surface.

If you have any leftovers, store in an airtight container.
