Thanks, Martha (brown bag popcorn)

You gotta love Martha Stewart. I mean really, how could you not?

I’ll be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with her show. I love all of the little tips and ideas, but I hate that she’s that good! How does she do it?! This one brilliant tip alone was worth watching ten shows combined. It’s changed the way our family “does” popcorn, forever…


Take a simple brown paper bag, pour in 1/4 cup of fresh kernels, fold the top of the bag down a few times, then crumple for a good seal. Like so…

Pop (get it?) into the microwave for 1 minute, or until the popping slows significantly.

It makes the best, fluffiest, white popcorn you’ve ever had. No butter. No oil. Nothing but fresh popped corn.

Once you perfect the “original” you can play with different spices. Just mix with the kernels before microwaving.

Happy popping!

    This is fascinating I had no idea about this until the moment I read this blog article of yours. Also I want to know one thing. Do you happen to know how to protect your personal reflections from being stolen without notifying you about it?

    Cute! Can’t wait to try it…and maybe my neighbors will be getting a fun treat on their doorstep this month.
