Because our family loves popcorn, and because I can't stand either all of the packaging included with pre-purchased microwaveable bags or the mess made when I make it on the stove, it caught my eye and we tried it right away. And it was great!
Here are the details from Family Circle (May 2010) magazine to give it a try for your family:
- Mix 2 tablespoons popcorn kernels, 1 teaspoon canola oil, and a dash of salt in a small bowl.
- Place mixture in a brown paper lunch bag and fold it down 2 times.
- Cook in your microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, until there are a few seconds between pops. Makes about 4 cups.
