Directions
  1. Soak dried corn in 8 cups of water for 12 to 18 hours. When finished soaking, drain water and use paper towels to dry the kernels.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Place a single layer of corn kernels on a roasting pan, add oil and toss until thoroughly coated. Bake the kernels in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring every 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. Using a spatula, place corn on paper towels to absorb excess oil. While still oily, select desired seasoning and sprinkle over the kernels, turning them to season completely.
  5. At fist, the kernels may be somewhat chewy from the absorbed oil. Dry the corn in a cool, dry area for a day or so.
