Quick and easy guide on how to pop popcorn in the microwave using just a paper bag, no oil needed.
Today I’m talking popcorn. It’s one of my all-time favorite, easy, healthy snacks for the whole family. Did you know that you can pop popcorn kernels in a brown paper bag in the microwave?! I didn’t until just a few years ago. I’ve always used an air-popper to pop popcorn and mine stopped working. We are total popcorn nuts and I was desperate to find a solution to my popper-less state! After multiple batches of burnt popcorn on the stove-top, I did a little internet searching and discovered you could pop popcorn in a brown paper bag in the microwave; nothing special to it.
I don’t ever cook things in the microwave, and honestly I try to avoid the microwave as often as I can, but this method has been a life saver! You don’t need an air-popper, a stove-top popper, or any oil, and you can ditch those little chemical-filled bags of microwaved “popcorn” now too. This method is so easy and you can use a few simple things you probably already have in your house. Popcorn is a great whole-grain, fiber-filled snack that everyone loves. Add some real butter and salt and you just can’t go wrong. SO delicious.
And because you are only using a microwave, this is something that you could show your older kids how to make on their own. Popcorn popping = life skill.
I love popcorn so much I’ve even grown five types of popcorn in my garden. It’s fabulous to eat them all winter!
