Fresh & Healthy Microwave Popcorn

Popcorn – the perfect snack that comes from the garden.

Don’t you love the convenience that comes from tossing a bag of microwavable popcorn into the microwave and moments later your enjoying a warm fresh, healthy snack. But with all the concern over microwavable bags containing PFOA, a suspected carcinogen, why take the chance if you don’t have to? Especially when you can microwave your own in a bag or bowl, just as easily and for a lot less money.

  1. Measure 1/2 cup popcorn into a large brown PAPER lunch bag
  2. Roll the top over twice to keep the kernels in
  3. Place in microwave
  4. Set for 5 minutes on regular power.
  5. Start listening after 4 minutes. When there’s 2-3 seconds between the popping sound, your popcorn is ready!

Add melted butter, garlic powder, or whatever flavors you like.
