Oh yes. Instant popcorn without all the weird greasy coating in your mouth. No additives, no preservatives, and amazingly enough, no oil!
My 4 year old son just had his tonsils and adnoids out two weeks ago, and the only thing in the world he wanted was popcorn - which was on the no-no list. So when the doctor gave him the all-clear, look out! All I've been doing is making popcorn. Sadly, he won't let me use the air popper, probably because it's circa 1975 and sounds like a jet engine taking off. So I begrudgingly bought microwave popcorn, and immediately remembered why I don't like it - that gross greasy salty coating of the mouth.
Then I found nirvana. I was innocently browsing Pinterest, and came across this incredible post on SquawkFox. She has such a brilliantly simple tutorial, with such lovely pictures, I highly recommend you go there.
I will, however, tell you a couple things I learned. I used the basic lunch bag size paper bag and 1/2 cup popcorn kernals, but after about two minutes, it was so full of popcorn and hot kernals, it came open at the top and burst a seam on the bottom. So I pushed stop, and ended up with a lot of unpopped kernals:
|A bunch of leftovers - hence, using less next time.|
Next time, I will use 1/3 cup of kernals. Other than that, AMAZING. So incredibly light and fluffy, and WAY sweeter than store-bought microwave popcorn. Oh, and not greasy and coat-your-mouth gross. I like a little I can't believe it's not butter spray and salt, or a little butter spray, splenda, and maybe even some cinnamon.
What do you like on your popcorn?
