Easy-to-make-microwaved-popcorn-at-home! The goal is to pop as many kernels as you can without burning the popcorn. And yes you can do it!
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
- 1 medium brown paper bag
- Melted butter and salt or other seasonings to taste
- Add the popcorn to the paper bag and fold the top over a time or two.
- Microwave on high until the popping has a one second gap in it, 2-2.5 minutes.
- Stop the microwave, dump the popped popcorn into a large bowl and season as desired.
The time that that will take will vary depending on the age and water content of your popcorn, your climate/weather, and your microwave.
Don’t walk away from the popping or you’ll end up with a bag of burnt popcorn.
Stand there and listen until, after the popping starts going rapidly, you hear a one second pause in popping. As soon as you hear that little break, stop the microwave.
