Our kitchen is so tiny and we don't have room for a microwave, so we do oil-popped kernels in a pan. Which is good. But this method right here is a game changer. No clean-up required and you save about 25 calories per cup! Yeah, I think we'll be moving aside some appliances for a microwave pronto!
Air Popped Microwave Popcorn
Pour 1/2 cup popcorn kernels into a brown paper bag. Fold the top over two times so the kernels don't escape. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until popping slows down. Careful opening the bag! Add salt and seasonings of your choice.
Have fun experimenting with this - I know I'm going to try all sorts of seasonings like cayenne + cumin or cinnamon + brown sugar or red pepper flakes + grated cheese! How do you make your popcorn?
