DIY Microwave Popcorn

 Micorwave Popcorn

I know I am easily amused, but I am still amazed every time I make this. Its so easy, inexpensive and a great alternative to the artificial flavoring of packaged popcorn – or the mess and stress of the stove top method. What you need:

A paper bag (the size of a lunch bag)
About ½ cup of popcorn kernels
1 tbsp melted butter (2-3 if my husband is making it! Its up to you)
few shakes of salt

Put the kernels in the paper bag, roll the top of the bag over 3-4 times. Place the bag on its side in the microwave. Microwave on high for 2 ½ minutes (could be more or less depending on your microwave – just listen to when there is a pause between pops then stop it). Pour the butter and salt in the bag and shake. Enjoy!
