We have a road in our neighborhood we call "Blossom Row." We call it this all year long although it only blossoms about two weeks out of the year. When it does, it is our favorite thing to go driving through the row of trees. Blossoms never seem to stay long enough in the spring. In celebration of blossoms, we can sing "popcorn popping" and make our own popcorn.
I am putting this recipe on my "make only at home list." I wonder why I have been buying these bags of microwave popcorn for all of these years when I could really be making my own for pennies on the dollar! This is quick and easy, with the only challenge being finding the right toppings for your popcorn.
Update: Please be careful with popping, it goes from cooked, to burnt, to smoking, really fast. Get to know your microwave and what settings work best.
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1 lunch bag, paper
Put popcorn kernels in the bottom of the lunch bag. Fold the lunch bag down two or three times. Place in the microwave on its side. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until popping is about 2 seconds apart. Cover in salt, butter and what ever else delights your family!
