I am a popcorn fan…I got that from my Dad. I like quick and easy microwave popcorn but I don’t need all the salt and flavorings microwave popcorn gives. I recently discovered that I can make my own microwave popcorn from regular popcorn. Here what you need to do to have popcorn like this.
Take a small brown paper bag. Put 1/3 cup of regular popcorn in the bag. Fold the bag over twice and tape.
I put it in the microwave for 2 minutes. All times will vary according to your microwave. Here’s the bag all puffed out and full of popcorn.
Here’s the good news. You can save your bag and use it again…..Remember this popcorn isn’t loaded with seasonings and butter. If you want that, you’ll have to add it.
wow. who knew it was so easy.. thanks for the tip!
JO!! I LOVE popcorn…never thought to do it this way!! I don’t buy the stuff with all the additives…so I don’t make any(…too much work to get out the popcorn machine…) Love this! Thanks so much!
Would it be showing my age if I said that this is the way we made popcorn years ago when microwaves were new? Thanks for the memory!
My husband is a popcorn fiend. As soon as I read this, he ran off to the store to get some popcorn so we can try it out!
Thanks for such a fun post!
Thank you so much. I have to admit that I’ve never tried this, but we LOVE popcorn, so I will try it this evening.
Thanks for the wonderful tip. Popcorn is added to my food shopping list for next week. Also—–where do you buy the Aurifil wool thread as none of my LQS carry it. Marie
Thanks for the recipe. I usually make popcorn the old fashioned way – on the stove, but it uses so much oil. I’ll be trying this. I’ve been behind on blog reading, so I just wanted to tell you that I love your new wool projects! You’ve been busy!
Jo, you are so smart.
Yes- just in time for a relaxing saturday evening. Thanks!
Good to know about the popcorn. I’m waiting on some popcorn from my great newphew from his boy scout troop. When I’m feeling pressed for time, I’ll remember this microwave idea. Thanks for sharing.
Great!!! I’ll try it this way. Thanks for the hint!
