I hate the gunk that’s in microwave popcorn – weird oils, flavorings and who knows what? – and have lately been making popcorn on the stove, the old-fashioned way, using a jar of kernels and a little oil.
Now, I’ll invest in some brown paper lunch sacks and make my own microwaveable popcorn that’s fat-free. I knew you could do it, but wasn’t sure if oil of some kind was required. Of course not; it requires steam only.
Two notes: Note 1: Some paper bags are made with tiny metal chips and react in the microwave. Not all are labeled. Recycled paper typically isn’t, but you’re on your own here, since I have no way to tell you a brand name for the bags. (White paper bags would also work.)
Note 2: Remember to buy fresh popcorn in a jar, and seal it well after each use. Popcorn dries out and won’t pop well if it’s too old. Fresh popcorn pops huge, so you only need 1/4 cup per lunch-sized bag.
