A vast amount of the popcorn consumed in this country is produced via microwave oven. In fact, Americans spend approximately $18,000,000,000.00 a year on microwave popcorn.* And here’s the thing, we could save about $17,999,999,993.00 by following this recipe. No … seriously.
*I totally just made that up.
- 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- Combine the popcorn and salt. Shake to combine in a brown paper lunch bag. Fold the top of the bag over twice to close. Place the bag in the microwave and microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until there are about 5 seconds between pops. Open the bag with care and devour.
