Homemade Microwavable Popcorn

Introduction: Homemade Microwavable Popcorn

Make your own delicious popcorn in the microwave faster and cheaper yourself! Great for movies, christmas trees, or a delicious snack!

Needed things: Popcorn seeds, paper lunch bag, microwave  oven.

Step 1: Fill the Bag

Take 1/2 a cup of popcorn seeds and  pour inside paper lunch bag.

Step 2: Prepare to Cook

Once the seeds are inside the bag, do one small fold on the bag allowing the popcorn to expand while keeping it from popping out of the bag. You may also want to use a clip to keep it from spilling.

Step 3: Time to Microwave!

Place the bag in the microwave for around 1 minute and 45 seconds.

Step 4: Do You Hear Popping?

Popcorn should start popping soon after it is put in, if the popcorn comes out of the bag, stop, reseal or remove some of the popcorn from the bag.

Step 5: Delicious Popcorn for All!

Now you have wonderful, non-burnt popcorn that everyone will enjoy! Add salt and/or butter along with other toppings to enhance the flavor!

    My solution to sealing the bag is to punch 2 holes about 1 inch apart along the folded edge. I then use a tooth pick to seal it (in one hole out the other). Works for me.

    I don't think binder clip in a microwave would be a good idea.

    Lots of them are plastic, I mean, all plastic, without a metal spring or support.

    I love fresh microwave popcorn but you may want to consider using something other than a "metal binder clip" in a microwave oven. I have used a couple of regular staples to secure the top of the bag without any sparking or burning problems. As always, stay and watch the popcorn cooking just in case a "flaming" situation develops......
