Hot Air Popcorn Makers

Popcorn is one of my favourite snacks.  Although there are many hot-air popcorn makers on the market today, in all shapes and sizes, I prefer to make my popcorn with my own invention of a hot-air popcorn maker…

All you need is a brown paper bag (the medium-sized ones from LCBO work great), some popping corn, a few spoonfuls of butter, and a microwave.  I melt the butter first in a cup in the microwave so it is ready to add to the freshly popped corn.  Then I pour some popping corn (I never measure, but approximately 1/2 cup) into the brown paper bag.  Fold the bag closed and place it in the center of the microwave.  Cook on high for approximately 3 minutes, listening carefully. Stop the microwave when the sound of popping slows down.  You will have a few unpopped kernels in the bag but do not wait too long to stop it or the popcorn will burn.

My method is less expensive and you won’t have yet another kitchen appliance to store.  So, the next time you want a healthy snack, give my hot air popcorn method a try.
