Making your own microwaveable popcorn at home is an incredibly easy way to avoid chemicals (used to create “flavor” and to coat the microwave bags) and save money.
Simply buy a bag of kernels (less than $3 at the grocery store) and a stack of brown paper lunch bags (I bought 50 bags for a dollar). Place a handful of kernels in the bag, fold over the opening of the bag a few times, and pop in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes until the popping slows down. Pour on some REAL butter or olive oil and your favorite toppings – salt, Parmesan cheese, cinnamon and sugar, chilli powder . . . let your imagination soar. Give the bag a hardy shake to distribute the flavor and enjoy.
It's that easy. Plus, it works out to about 8 cents a bag. Why overpay for fake butter popcorn when you can have the real deal at home at a fraction of the cost?
