I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this, but making your own popcorn at home is not only way cheaper but so much better for you than buying that crapity crap in a bag that’s filled with all sorts of fake butter and chemicals.
The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Bird is our chief popcorn maker and she has been using this recipe for as long as I can remember. Perfect for Friday Night at The Movies or any other day of the week.
1/4 cup good popcorn kernals
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Paper lunch bag
Measure popcorn and toss it into the bottom of a plain brown paper bag. Add salt and olive oil and give it a good shake. Fold the top of the bag over and staple the corners closed.
Place the paper bag in the microwave and microwave on high for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, or until there are a few seconds between pops.
