  • Place the popcorn kernels in the paper bag. Fold the top of the brown lunch bag, by folding it three times over.
  • Place your brown lunch bag with the popcorn kernels in the microwave and set your timer for 2.5 minutes on high. (Cooking time will range from 2-2.5 minutes).
  • Listen to the popcorn kernels popping and when the popping has a one-second gap in it remove the bag of microwave popcorn from the microwave.
  • Open the brown paper bag ever so slightly and shake it upside down over a small bowl to remove any of the the popcorn kernels that didn't pop.
  • Pour your popcorn into a large bowl and season to taste with butter, ghee, salt, pepper or popcorn seasonings.
