DIY Microwave Popcorn

Years ago I saw Alton Brown make popcorn in a brown paper bag. Genius! The only thing I tweaked: Skip the staples on the bag. The idea of a stray staple in my daughter's popcorn freaks me out. If you hate the chemical smell of commercial-brand microwave popcorn not to mention the possible health hazards of consuming such chemicals, try this!

Step 1: Take out popping corn.

Step 2: Pour 1/4 c popping
corn into bag.

Step 3: Flatten the bag and close
opening with three narrow folds.
(You want to secure it but leave
plenty of room for corn to pop.)

Step 4: Flip the bag over such that its bottom
rests on the glass so the bag can inflate.
(Eek! Don't look at my dirty microwave!)

Step 5: Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

So plump with promise . . .


Here are a few additional steps to add flavor to your popcorn.

Add olive oil and salt to taste.

Sprinkle some nutritional yeast
for extra savory goodness.
