How to make inexpensive microwave popcorn at home.
1/4 cup of popping corn (generally $0.99 for a pound bag.
1 Teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Popcorn salt, you decide how much (use popcorn salt,it has finer granules than table salt with the same taste)
Other seasonings (get creative)optional
A measuring cup
A brown paper bag
Open the paper bag and pour the popping corn in. Carefully add your seasonings and salt. Shake gently. Now add the teaspoon of olive oil. Fold the bag over once at the end and staple twice. No, the staples will not spark in the microwave. Gently shake the contents to mix and press out the air. Lay flat in the microwave and cook until the pops get about 3 to 5 seconds apart. Open the bag carefully as steam will be escaping and you can get scalded. Pour into a bowl, serve and enjoy the taste and the knowledge that this heaping bag of microwave popcorn cost less than $0.10!
