This tip comes from my reader Beth…
Did you know that you can make your own microwave popcorn without all of the artificial colors and flavors? All you need is popcorn kernels, oil, a paper lunch bag, and a microwave! Put 1/4 cup popcorn kernels in a paper lunch bag, 1/2 teaspoon of olive or canola oil. Seal the bag by either folding 2 or 3 times, scotch tape and microwave for around 2 minutes and voila! microwave popcorn! Microwaves do vary, so listen for the popping to slow. Your microwave might need more or less time. For kettle corn you can add a spoonful of white granulated sugar and a couple of shakes of salt.
Not only does it save money, (2 or 3 dollars for 30 to 50 bags of popcorn depending on the size of the bag), but also eliminates all of the artificial flavorings and colorings that are in most microwave popcorns!
