What you need:
-Brown paper lunch bag (You can get a pack of 100 for around $3)
-Popcorn kernels (store-brand works just as well as the expensive kind)
-Butter spray/popcorn spray (Kernel Season's is a good one, but you can also use the butter flavored non-stick cooking spray)
-Seasoning of your choice (I love mixing Kernel Season's Ranch seasoning with a little J&D's Original Bacon Salt :-)
Depending how much you want to make, put 1/4 to 1/3 cup of kernels into the bag. Fold top of bag over two times (you'll have to perfect this according to the size of your microwave, but there should be just enough room for the bag to still be able to rotate)
I always put the timer on 3 minutes, but end up stopping it around 2 minutes or soon thereafter, which is usually when the popping slows down (but again, you'll have to perfect it to your microwave's strength...which means you may slightly burn a few kernels in the beginning).
Pour into a large bowl, then spray the popcorn, add some seasoning, shake bowl and repeat until it's to your liking. Low fat, yummy, and economical. Although this method differs from the Woot method, you may still drink Whiskey if that's your thing. :-)
Next time, homemade microwave potato chips!
