DIY Microwave Popcorn
I have always been a big popcorn lover, and the convenience of microwave popcorn was too good to pass up for many years. Recently, I have been hearing lots of negative things about it, and wanted a healthier option for myself and my family.
I was told about a DIY microwave popcorn version, and thought I would share it with you in case you hadn't heard of it before (although a quick google search pulls up LOTS of info on it)
What you need:
1/4 cup popcorn kernels (even slightly less, you want to make sure there is enough room in the bag)
1 brown paper lunch bag
What you do:
- place kernels in the bag
- loosely fold down the top (just enough to close the bag)
- place the bag in the microwave, and set it for 3 minutes on high. Listen until you hear 3 seconds or so between pops, and then it is ready
- remove bag from microwave (careful, my bag ripped)
Season how you wish (I still love butter and a little bit of salt on my popcorn) - you can either season it in the bag and eat as is, or pour it into a bowl and re-use the bag next time (unless it rips like mine did).
Have you made popcorn this way before? and what is your favourite way to season popcorn?
