Bern the Bunny enjoys a good snack as much as anyone, and decided to share with our readers how to make popcorn that is not only cheap but also good for you.
While recent studies show breathing in fumes from microwave popcorn packets can be dangerous for your health, we all know the microwave is the quickest and easiest way to make popcorn.
But, how about making your own microwave popcorn bags?
Bern Bunny shows us how easy it is.
What you will need:
Paper lunch bag
Your choice of cooking oil
First put the popcorn in a small bowl and mix in a small amount of the cooking oil of your choice. Be sure to make a healthful choice!
Stir it around until all the popcorn is coated. You will be surprised how little cooking oil you will need to use. Then pour the coated popcorn into the paper bag.
No need to poke a hole in the bag. DO NOT POKE A HOLE IN THE BAG!
Just fold the top of the paper bag down a few times. Then place the bag in the microwave oven.
Set the time for two minutes and then LISTEN.
When the pops begin to slow, stop the microwave and take the popcorn out. Never wait until the pops stop altogether, that means overcooked popcorn. The few must sacrifice for the good of the many, so a few unpopped kernels mean better tasting popcorn.
Remember you won’t need much popcorn to fill a paper bag. It will make about 2 bowls. If you need more, just make more popcorn and use more bags! You can then season your popcorn as you like.
You can microwave some butter, margarine or just lightly salt. It’s how you like it. No funny microwave popcorn taste either and easy clean up!
It’s Bunny Nummy good. Also it’s very inexpensive, just keep a supply of paper bags on hand and you can have perfect popcorn whenever you like. Plus no harmful fumes! Easy enough for children also, though be careful as the bag is hot coming out of the microwave.
So now, buy some school lunch paper bags, some popcorn and you probably already have cooking oil on hand. It’s truly so much better than microwave popcorn in bags from the store!
