I LOVE popcorn! It’s salty, and crunchy, and buttery, and lovely. I could go on and on about it. I always have microwave popcorn in my cupboards. But since having gone “organic” and only eating whole foods, I have not touched a bag of the stuff, and I must admit that I miss it. If you have a box of popcorn hanging around your kitchen, take a moment to read the ingredients label. It is full of butter, salt, sugar, artificial color and flavor, oil, and preservatives…all of which we should not want in our bodies. Lucky for you though, I came across an amazing, life changing, tip this week on how to make natural microwave popcorn at home! Brace yourselves, you are about to be amazed!
All you need are 2 simple things:
A brown paper lunch bag
You can find these in the popcorn section of the grocery store.
Any kind will work, or you can purchase Organic Kernels at places like Whole Foods.
So, how do you do it? Follow these simple steps:
1. Open lunch bag and put 2 small handfuls of popcorn kernels in.
2. Make 3 tight folds at the top of the bag. You should roll the bag down only an inch or so. The popcorn needs room to expand as it cooks.
3. Place in microwave for 2 minutes. (when are first trying this, stay by the microwave to listen for the popping to stop. Every microwave is different, but mine takes about 1.5 minutes to cook)
4. Remove from the microwave, open up the bag and enjoy wonderfully natural popcorn!
Following this recipe will give you a medium bowl full of popcorn. So, obviously, if you are cooking for a large crowd, are super hungry, or have a double feature movie night, you might need to make more than one batch. This popcorn is all natural so you can control what you put on it. You can add butter, salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, whatever you like! You know exactly what you are eating which is exactly what we want! Also, since there is no oil on the kernels, you can reuse each brown paper bag up to 5 times…so no wasting paper!
I am so excited that this actually works. To be honest I did not believe the article when I read it. I mean, if we can make microwave popcorn at home, why wouldn’t we? Isn’t there a reason we buy it at the store? But this actually works and I’m thrilled! So, go pop some popcorn and enjoy! You will be amazed. Guaranteed :).
