I discovered on Pinterest the amazing phenomenon of popping homemade popcorn in the microwave!! Why I had been so oblivious to such an ingenious is beyond me! You can use a brown paper lunch bag or a glass bowl and plate which is the method I use. Pour the popcorn in the bowl microwave for approx. 3 1/2 minutes and viola you have popcorn!
To make it kettle style follow the recipe below. The kettle popcorn turned out perfect! Not too drenched with oil and sugar like the mircowavable bags and definitely much more healthier without the unnecessary added ingredients that you might find with the store bought bags. This is definitely my go to method whenever im craving popcorn from now on!
