Brown Bag Popcorn

I recently ran across a way to make microwave popcorn without paying so much. I went to Publix and bought a bag of Jolly Time popcorn for $1.50, and then I went to the Dollar Tree and bought 50 brown lunch bags for $1. Last night I decided to try it out. It's so simple. Just add 1/4 cup popcorn kernels to the brown bag, turn the end of the bag over 3 times, and stick it in the microwave for 4 minutes or less depending on your microwave. I stood beside the microwave and waited until I felt like it was done but not burned. Voila! You can add salt, butter, or whatever else you are craving once you pour it into a bowl. Pros- It is simple, cheap, healthier, and tastes great. Cons- Not all of the kernels popped. I will definitely quit spending money on packaged popcorn.

My next project is to make Kettle Corn, but for this I took some birthday money from my parents and ordered a Whiley Pop stovetop popcorn popper. I found a good recipe on Instructables, which by the way, is a very cool website! Once my popper arrives, I will whip up a batch of my favorite, Kettle Corn, and post the results!

Happy Popping!
