and nothing quite like the satisfaction of being able to make a quick and healthy batch in the comfort of your own home.
all you need is three very simple things - a paper bag, a functioning microwave, and some popcorn kernels of course - oh, and a don't forget to add a good measure of enthusiasm...and being easily excited by little things is a bonus condiment too...
four steps to yummy air popped homemade popcorn :
one / put about a tablespoon and a half full of popcorn kernels (this will make about a cup of popped popcorn) into a paper bag
two / fold the top of the paper bag into 1cm increment a couple of times
three / set microwave for 90 seconds and stop it when the 'pops' slow down to less than one per second (this bit takes a bit of experimenting as it depends on the amount of kernels and the wattage of the microwave)
four / dig in! enjoy the popcorn while its still nice and warm :)
