Homemade Microwave Popcorn
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pour 1/4 cup popcorn kernels into a brown paper lunch sack. Add olive oil and salt. Fold over and staple top of bag. Smooth bag to get rid of air, and rub kernels through bag to distribute oil. Pop for about 2 minutes, or until there are 3 seconds between pops. Pour into bowl and serve.
Note: The tiny staple will NOT cause sparks in the microwave. Be sure to remove it before you pour out the popcorn.
Variation:Add 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary to bag. Toss popped popcorn with butter, parmesan and garlic powder.
