I know what you are thinking! This isn’t a recipe….I can buy microwave popcorn at the grocery store. True! But did you know that you can make your own microwave popcorn using plain ol’ popping kernels?
– 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
– 1 brown lunch sack
1. Put kernels in lunch sack. Fold sack down a couple times (make sure to leave plenty of room for the popping).
2. Put in microwave for 2-3 minutes. (Times vary depending on your microwave)
3. When popping slows, remove from microwave, open bag carefully, and top with your favorite ingredients.
*You can make this in a larger brown paper grocery sack and use more kernels.*

Yay! Knew there had to be a way. Our air popper kicked the bucket and I have been unsatisfied with the packaged microwave products!

Coool! Is there a way to make it seasoned? I guess you can't add butter until after it pops, right?
Yep, the seasonings probably wouldn’t stick but the idea is to not add a lot of butter, etc. so the popcorn is healthier because it is pooped using hot air and not oil.
