Perfect No Burn Popcorn - Every Kernal Pops and It's Healthy Too

“Can't stand store bot microwave popcorn? Me too. Perfect results with just a few un-popped kernals and you get to add salt the way you want. We love the tangy taste of olive oil on ours. We like Parmesan or Romano cheese every once in a while too”

Directions

  1. Place popcorn in 2 1/2 Quart Pyrex or other microwaveable bowl with a microwave lid. It's best to have lid vented, popcorn expands by violent steam pressure so let it out.
  2. Microwave on hi for total of 3 minutes regardless if it's all popped or not.
  3. Remove popped corn and place on flat cookie sheet
  4. Microwave remaining un-popped kernals for another 2 minutes or til all is popped.
  5. Spread popcorn on sheet and spray sparingly with oil - I use refillable Mr. Misto with extra virgin olive oil.
  6. Salt to taste.
  7. Be careful! Steam is way hotter that boiling water - the bowl is hotter than a SOB! I use my hand to remove popcorn from the pyrex bowl but would be safer with a spoon or spatula.
