CSA Box: Popcorn

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
- seasoning 


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.
