Homemade Microwave Popcorn

from flickr, not mine

Yes. Homemade microwave popcorn. No longer will I suffer under the tyranny of crappy storebought microwave popcorn with its weird flavors and absurd amounts of grease and salt!!

This is embarrassingly easy. The only trick is finding a paper bag to make it in. I used the bag my Evan Williams came in, though I’m not sure those bags are technically food safe. Maybe you should find some proper lunchbags. Anyway.

Microwave Popcorn

1/3 cup popcorn kernels

1 tablespoon canola oil

Butter, salt as desired

Find a paper bag. Mix up popcorn kernels and oil in bag. Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes. Take out as soon as you hear 2 second gaps between pops. Add melted butter and salt, and, as the French say, viola!
