Did You Know You Can Make Homemade Microwave Popcorn?
Microwave popcorn has always fascinated me. As a kid it seemed like a magic treat that I could only partake of at other people’s houses(my parent’s were very food strict) my obsession with popcorn was so great that I even planted popcorn in our garden. To their credit microwave popcorn is pretty bad, but that does not mean you can not make it yourself! I just use a paper bag fill it with 3-4 tablespoons of popcorn kernels, a tab of butter and microwave it on high for about 3-4 minutes. I then salt it with popcorn salt(which is salt I put into a food processor for a few minutes until it is fine). The secret is to fold the bag a few times. This is a wonderful treat and if you have kids let them make it themselves! It is all about the magic!
