Parched corn has a long history that is said to go back to Biblical times and earlier.  Parched corn's history here in the US is well documented as a staple for the Indians as well as the settlers.  Although the Indians and settlers roasted the corn somewhat differently, the end product was about the same.  Many times the only "trail rations" the settlers and hunters had was a pouch of parched corn.  In modern terminology....the Indians "dry roasted" the corn and the pioneers "oil roasted or fried" the corn kernels.  The small amount of oil is used to help hold the salt.

Parched corn is a hearty snack and especially enjoyed by those that always fight over the "old maids" left over in the bottom of the popcorn bowl.
