With the booming popularity of Pinterest I find myself, more than ever, questioning, “Why didn’t I think of that?”. Some ideas are so clever it leaves me in awe.
Brown paper lunch sac + popcorn kernels = air popped popcorn…with no dishes. Or oil.
This idea…it’s ingenious. But I wouldn’t have ever come up with it because I’d have considered a fire a more likely result than perfectly popped popcorn.
SEVERAL month (years?) ago, I bought a bag of popcorn kernels with every intention of making stove-top popcorn. (In case you’ve been living under a rock, microwave popcorn has become another food under question).
And that stove-top popcorn…it never happened.
Then there’s there’s the oil in the bottom of that big’ol pot, and I don’t know about you, but I just don’t need or want those added calories.
This popcorn can be be made just about anywhere with a microwave, including work. This is a cheaper and healthier option when compared to microwave popcorn and is pretty much fool-proof. Feel free to add seasonings to taste – stevia & cinnamon, garlic salt, seasoning salt…whatever is your pleasure!

Place in microwave, standing upright, and set for 3 minutes (popcorn may be done after 2:30 to 2:45) or use popcorn button, if available. Listen carefully for kernels to stop popping.
