Brown Bag Popcorn
about 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels
Place 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels into a small brown paper bag.
Fold over top of brown paper bag with a few small folds to keep bag closed to ensure popcorn stays in your bag while popcorn kernels later are exploding into fluffy popcorn :)
Place brown bag upright in microwave and set to cook for a couple of minutes, about 3 or so, or until popping has slowly diminished, or just use the popcorn button on the microwave if you have one.
Listen closely for the popcorn in popping action!
Once the popping has almost halted, open microwave, shake your bag of popcorn, open, and enjoy! :)
Yummy note: Since this first time of popping my popcorn, I also prepared batches with about a tablespoon of oil/melted butter coating the kernels before putting them in the bag and it also seemed to work fine. Only big thing about adding that before popping, it makes your bag very oily and kind of a mess and you won't be able to really reuse your bag. If you pop the kernels dry in your brown bag, you can reuse the brown bag for another batch of popcorn easily without a mess.
|The popcorn we used for this experiment was picked up from a local Chicagoland farmstand store, Goebbert's, which we love to take little trips to and visit, and of course, get some great produce. |
How cute is this, I had to share Alicia and her adorable little shopping cart to tote our goodies in while at Goebbert's.
