I’ve got to say thank you to Mrs. Stephanie Hott for teaching me how to do make popcorn in a brown paper sack.
You may remember a while back I posted about my new popcorn maker and how much I loved it. Well, it broke. Just like I read in the reviews of my maker, it broke basically without effort during cleanup one day. I was very upset. But then relieved when Stephanie told me about making popcorn this way.
Here’s how it works:
1 – brown paper sack
1 – 1/4 cup measuring cup
1 – package popping corn kernels
2 tablespoons salted, organic butter (or butter of your choice)
1 – bowl to eat your yummy popcorn out of
Directions: Measure 1/4 cup of kernels into your measuring cup. Pour into brown paper sack. Curl up edges of the bag so that the kernel don’t escape during popping. Microwave for 2 minutes (give of take). Stop the microwave if 2-3 seconds pass between pops. It cooks faster in the thin brown paper bag. After it’s finished popping, pour into your bowl. Then, melt 2 tablespoons of butter (or more if you are a butter addict) in the microwave. About 20-30 seconds to liquify. Then, drizzle 1/2 over your popcorn. Toss the popcorn to spread the first layer of butter around, then, pour the remaining butter over the popcorn. And, finally, enjoy!
- FREE – 1 bottle of kernels costs like $4, but I had mine in the house already. I bought it like 3 months ago and have made at least 8 batches of popcorn with it and have SO much left. It’s an insane value.
- FREE – I bought a big stack of brown paper lunch sacks a long time ago for like $3 and never used them, so I also had these in the house.
- FREE – Butter. Everyone always has this in the house.
