Paper-bag Popcorn

If you love Popcorn this is a gotta try recipe and cost just pennies compared to the commercial microwave popcorn.
You are going to need:
 Brown Paper Bag
Popping Corn
Salt
and Melted Butter (optional)


You will first add about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of Popping Corn to the Brown Paper Bag. Its really not going to make a big difference on the outcome if you over or under measure. 
Add a dollop of Melted Butter.

Then Salt it up. 
You need to fold the top of the bag a few times so that when it is being popped it doesn't get all over. 

Next, put it in the Microwave for about 2 min. Every microwave is different, so listen carefully, when they quit popping that is a sure sign that it is done.

Now open it up and you have lovely popcorn! Enjoy!

My aunt used to have us do this when we wanted popcorn. So simple, and so forgotten! I will be sharing this on our Share a Site Sunday.

Have a great weekend.

We usually use our popper, but it's a hassle to clean. I'll have to give this a try!!

I love this! My uncle once sent me popcorn still on the cob that he grew and he sent directions to put it in a paper bag to pop it (still on the cob). I didn't think about popping regular popcorn in a bag. Super idea!

this makes so much sense it's one of those "...why didn't I think of it!" moments.
