A month ago in CSA box from here was a bag of popcorn and then just two weeks ago there was another bag of it. I don't own a popcorn machine and I don't particularly like popping it on the stove. So I threw it in a brown paper bag and did it all in the microwave. For real.
What you will need:
- one brown paper bag
- 1/4 - 1/2 a cup kernels
- butter or oil of choice
Place the popcorn in the bag and loosely fold over the top twice. Put it in the microwave for 2.5-3 minutes. Just like store bought popcorn remove it from the microwave once you don't hear any more 'pops' for a few seconds.
You can always just use some salted butter or eat it straight up. For additional flavour you can toss on some spices that are in your cupboard. I have tried (clockwise from top right): chipotle chili powder, dill weed, no salt added lemon pepper spice mix, onion powder, pumpkin pie spice, and cracked pepper and salt.
|My personal favorite is cracked pepper and salt prepared with a tsp or two of butter.|
