We have some serious movie buffs on staff here at CF and there is a general agreement that a family movie night just isn’t complete without a big bowl of popcorn to munch on. But at least one staffer has sworn off microwave popcorn after news that the chemicals in the bags can be harmful to your health. While air-popping is an option (and a healthy one at that), what happens if you don’t have an air popper?
One solution is to follow the lead of Jami Nato, the crafty mom behind the blog From the Natos, and make your own microwave popcorn in a paper bag. Yes, a paper bag. It’s really that simple.
What you’ll need:
• A paper bag
• Popcorn kernels
• Olive oil
• Garlic powder (or other seasoning)
You’ll find the full instructions for this quick and easy snack over on Jami’s site. We love that this version of microwave popcorn lets you control all the ingredients, so there is no worry about weird preservatives or harmful chemicals. Plus, you can season it any way you wish to suit your family’s tastes—try it with dill or paprika, or even a little cinnamon. Delish!
