How to make easy paper bag popcorn

Forget your hot air poppers, Jiffy Pops, high-fat toxic microwave popcorn, and special pots for stove top popping. You can make no added fat popcorn in the microwave with nothing more than a paper lunch bag. The bag can be reused quite a few times, then composted when it finally deteriorates too far.

Measure out 1/4 cup popcorn.

Put it in a paper bag and fold the top over 3 or 4 times.

Set the microwave for a couple of minutes. The first time you do this, stand by and note how long it takes until the kernels stop popping. This is the time you will set from now on. For me, it’s 90 seconds.

The bag will unfold, but unless you use more than 1/4 cup of popcorn, it won’t spill all over the microwave. The first time I did this I used 1/2 cup and made a bit of a mess. I make mistakes so you don’t have to.

Season to taste. I like a bit of low sodium soy sauce and nutritional yeast.
