I have read as many suggestions as I can find, I have tried all the pans/pots in my house, I have moistened the seeds and used seeds direct from the package, I have seeds all over my kitchen now. I get a few to pop but most do not. I want to try some of thre recipes that use popped amaranth but since I don't have any I was wondering if anyone has found a suitable replacement. The videos that I watch online show people using gas stove and mine is electric - if that is the trick it is not an easy or cheap fix just for one ingredient. I also saw one person that was using what looked like a ceramic lined pot. I know there are lots of discussions on this forum about this subject but didn't see any comments about other options for ingredients.
