Store bought microwave popcorn is nasty. That said, I’m not above eating microwave popcorn.
Because I’ve learned how to make it at home–sans all the chemical additives.
Yes, I know how to cook corn the old-fashioned way, in a pot on the stove. Or in our air popper. But there are some days when time is of the essence and a quick, nutritious snack can save the day.
In fact, this is a great technique for college kids and others who need a way to transport, keep and prepare fresh popcorn in a snap. Be sure to share a link to this recipe if you know someone who fits that description. Plus, wouldn’t a care package with this recipe, a bag of organic corn, and a batch of plain bags be a darling post-holiday, back-to-campus gift for your favorite undergrad?
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
Add kernels to a plain paper lunch bag. Fold over top, placing bag face down in microwave. Cook on high 2 minutes or until popping stops. Carefully remove the bag, pour out the corn and serve.
