Popcorn (Homemade in the Microwave)
It’s so cheap to make your own and it is pretty quick and easy, so I’ve tried this lots of times and here’s what I do now:
I use the Presto PowerPop microwave multi-popper with the Genuine PowerCup microwave concentrators. (I get those from Amazon.) I’ve had this popper forever, and I see new cute ones and am tempted to get a new one, but this one works perfectly.
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
½ teaspoon flavorless oil (I use canola because it’s what I have on hand
½ teaspoon table salt (I use regular table salt for this because it is smaller and sticks on the kernels better. I should get popcorn salt that is even smaller or I’ve heard you can put regular salt in the food processor so it will stick better, but I haven’t tried that, either.
I stir these together a bit, put them in the microwave and select popcorn, and in about 3 to 4 minutes, I have perfectly popped corn with few unpopped kernels. I realize microwaves vary so you may need to adjust.
