Popcorn in the microwave is a very easy and quick snack...plus making it from scratch means you know exactly what has gone into it.
Here's how we do it.
1. Use a glass bowl with a lid. This is a Pyrex brand casserole dish that I've had for about 15 years. It is a winner.
2. Add popcorn kernels to the bottom of the bowl with a dob of butter. A bag of popcorn kernels costs about $1.50 and you will get at least 4 big bowls of cooked popcorn for that ....bargain.
3. Microwave for approximately 3 minutes, with the lid on. It'll be crazy hot when you take it out so be careful removing the lid.
4. Now add your favourite topping. Do you like it plain and healthy? Would you like to add some more butter and salt? What about icing sugar and salt for Sweet and Salty popcorn?
