|Home made Microwave Popcorn|
Microwave Popcorn on the other hand, has so much added junk (generally speaking - I haven't researched every brand), that I tend to think of it as a heart-attack-in-a-bag. Add to that the price that is many times what it costs to make at home, and the added environmentally-unfriendly packaging . . . Well, let's just say I'm really glad I found out how to make my own!
|Homemade Microwave Popcorn Bag, ready to go in Microwave|
Open a new paper lunchbag
Put in 1/4 cup dry, unpopped Popcorn
Tape shut with non-metallic tape (like masking tape or freezer tape)
Lay in microwave, and turn on High for 2 minutes or "Popcorn" setting if you have one.
Stay nearby and listen. When popping slows so that there is 2 seconds between pops, turn it off.
(This seems to burn a little more easily than
the commercial stuff, so watch & listen carefully)
Open carefully so as not to burn yourself with steam.
Pour into bowl & eat.
You can season after popping if you desire. I usually spray on a bit of Olive oil from my fill-your-own sprayer, and add salt.
