I just found out that you can make microwave popcorn using a brown paper lunch bag, genius! We made two bags in a row out of pure fascination of how easy it was to do. It came out delicious, and with no scary toxins. Rowan loved it too, and had fun eating it out of the brown bag.
I made this batch with olive oil and sea salt.
Homemade Microwave Popcorn
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1 brown paper bag
Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Add popcorn to the brown paper bag. Fold over bag a few times to seal. Set the timer on the microwave for 3 minutes and wait until popping slows to a few seconds per pop. My bag took 2 minutes and 50 seconds, but all microwaves are different.
Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. I used the fine sea salt as it sticks to each popcorn kernel better.
