Paper Bag Popcorn!



Did You Know...that you can pop popcorn in an ordinary paper bag?

Just use a lunch size bag and cover the bottom of the bag in popcorn kernels...white or yellow.


Don't add anything else!
Just fold down the top of the bag a couple of times and place in your microwave.
I use the popcorn setting (I usually add on an extra 45 seconds or so)
Just listen for it to stop popping.

Voila! Microwave popcorn without any chemicals or artificial preservatives.
I never buy microwave popcorn from the market anymore!

It pops perfectly!

You can add whatever you would like for seasoning...

We use spray Canola or Oil Olive oil and salt. Extra Low-fat!

And it is so inexpensive too. You can even re-use the bag!

A quick, healthy snack!

Give it a try!

I feel I just won the lottery with your post about popcorn...I can't wait to try this today. Thank you!!!!

Cathy said...

I had no idea!!! This has to be so much better than the store bought kind...too many fake flavors for my taste...I usually use a very old air popper...this will be so much easier!!!

Thanks for the tip!!!

Enjoy!!!
XOXO

Thanks for the tip! I have a recipe for microwave caramel popcorn that is fantastic too! But I'm sure your version is better for me :)
Thanks so much again for the opportunity to win something from you. I'm excited to receive it and I'll let you know the second it lands in my anxious little hands. LOL
Have a great day,
Darla

Most importantly, 3 cups equals 1 (one) point on Wt. Watchers! THREE CUPS!

I had not heard of this, but it is a great tip. Thanks for sharing it.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Popcorn is one snack we all enjoy. This is a great tip and I am going this route the next time we have it. Thank you!

Lori R. said...

oh Carrie, you have just made my day!!!
I had no clue to even try this...
I eat popcorn pretty much every night for a snack and I drag out the heavy pot and lid, pop the corn, then clean up the stove and dishes... you have just simplified my life and time in the kitchen. Heck I can even just eat it out of the bag, no bowl to dirty!!!! WooHoo, guess what I am fixing tonight?????

What a great idea! Twyla

Teresa said...

Well this is unbelievable Carrie! Wow! I never knew!
Brown bags at Walmart...here I come!
Thanks for the great idea!
XXOOXX

Boy what an idea!
Where did you find this at?

Ruby Red Slippers said...

What??!! This is amazing!!! I had no idea...
I have a little one with severe food allergies {milk, and egg products} so I don't buy microwave popcorn-it usually has butter-this would be PERFECT for him, and I can add his soy butter!!!
YOU ARE AWESOME~~~

:)

Fresh Local and Best said...

That's awesome! I didn't know that I could make my own popcorn in that manner. Thanks for sharing!

Elyse said...

hi carrie,

around here, we are completely hooked on popping popcorn in EVOO in a crank-handled popper (from target). so delicious! in fact, i want some right now!

Betty said...

Carrie,
I'm so pleased to have you drop by and also to take the time to comment.
I don't believe I've met you before...

Your blog is lovely and I'd like to visit again...Betty

Dogwood said...

I am new to your blog. I did not know that you could "pop" popcorn in a regular lunch bag. Thanks for the great idea.

Mags said...

I've always wondered if this would work but have been afraid to try it. Now that I know it's safe, I'm off to buy some paper bags and some Orville's in a jar!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

WOW! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I make caramel corn every Christmas and this will help a lot!!!
Have a great weekend,
M.L.

Leslie said...

Cool tip. Popcorn in November always reminds me of Charlie Browns Thanksgiving.. all we need is some toast to go with it.

koralee said...

You are so clever my friend...I will try that next time...no more microwave bought popcorn for us! xoxox

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella said...

That's so clever Carrie, I never thought that we could do it ourselves but it makes perfect sense! :D

nancygrayce said...

Thanks for that idea!!! I am going to try that. We use the bag popcorn all the time, so this will be good for us!

aBohemianMarket said...

Hi Carrie:
I am your newest follower : ) I came to you via Myko's blog. This is one of those moment's where you say why didn't I think of that? How cool. I am going to try it this weekend so I will not have to use the stove; yes, I still pop popcorn the old fashion way : )
Pearl looks like a little lady sitting so nicely : )
You and your Hubby look happy!
Glad to meet you and I will be back.
peace

Xandra@Heart-of-Service said...

You have just made my decade! My husband eats popcorn EVERY night, and the kind he likes is $5 for 5 bags. It's just ridiculous.

I'm going to buy some kernals and try this on him tonight! Thank you so much!!

chrissy said...

hi carrie...i just came acrosss your blog. thanks for the tip on popcorn. i just bought a big bag of kernals because my whole family is coming in town for thanksgiving (az) and we have a tradition of placing 5 kernals of corn on each plate before we start our huge meal...just to remind us that the first pilgrims only had 5 kernals of corn rationed to them back in plymouth. now i know what to do with all my extra corn.
thanks.
your blog is darling.
