How to Cook Popcorn in the Microwave - Thursday's Tip

Thursday, March 3, 2016

This week's Thursday's Tip is how to cook popcorn in the microwave from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.



Did you know that you can cook popcorn in the microwave
with just a brown paper bag?

That's right.  You don't need to purchase packaged
microwave popcorn anymore.  This week's Thursday's Tip is going to show you that 
all you need is brown paper lunch bags,
popcorn kernels and you can make your own microwavable popcorn.

We've all heard the reports that microwave popcorn is bad for us. The bag that the popcorn comes package in is the problem, not to mention the artificial flavorings added to the store purchased popcorn. 

BUT don't worry!  You can use your microwave again for popcorn.  Just use a good old-fashioned brown paper bag.  Your popcorn will come out great.  There's even a variety of different toppings you can add to make it taste amazing!


Ingredients

1/4 cup popcorn kernels
Melted butter, or oil for topping
Salt, for topping

Directions

Measure the popcorn kernels into the bag.
Fold over the top of the bag over two or three folds and firmly crease the seam so that it stays closed.
Microwave for 2 to 4 minutes on high. Listen closely!  When the time between pops slows to about 2 seconds, your popcorn is ready. Depending on your microwave, popping can finish in as little as 2 minutes or take as long as 4 minutes. Do not wait for all the kernels to pop; your popcorn will burn, that's normal. 
Pour the popcorn into a bowl. Top with melted butter or oil and sprinkle with salt and enjoy!
