A cheap way to make microwave popcorn with or without the cob
Who knew it's so easy to make microwave popcorn on the cob. Put a cob of popping corn into a brown paper bag, fold the bag shut, place it in the microwave for 3 minutes & presto popcorn on the cob. It makes around 3 bowls of popcorn per cob and most of the popcorn falls off into the bag.
I purchased 6 ears of corn for a dollar so it's fairly inexpensive to make. Also you can do the same thing with the bags of popcorn kernels. Just place about 1/3 cup of kernels into the paper bag. You can add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and use kosher salt to taste. A very inexpensive and fast way to make microwave popcorn. Plus you wont have to worry about Fluorooctanoic Acid, or harmful butter flavor vapors. So simple, Yum!
