You Mean I Can Eat Microwave Popcorn Again?

I love popcorn, but I have been avoiding it because of the issues I have with microwave popcorn (cost, packaging, chemicals), so I was thrilled to see this post from Bitten about making popcorn in paper bags.

Apparently there is no secret formula in the stuff they sell in bags in the store. Yet again, product marketing and convenience has caused us to forget that some old fashioned ways aren't really that much harder.

I can't wait to try this out, I just added popping corn to my grocery list.
  1. Take 1/4 cup or so of popcorn
  2. Put it in a brown paper bag
  3. Fold the top a few times
  4. Microwave until the kernels stop popping (usually a couple minutes)
  5. Enjoy warm, healthy popcorn with your own preferred toppings (mmm, melted butter...)
