Paper Bag Popcorn

Written by Sophie McGough APD CDE

Kate has blogged before about the fabulous value she gets from her popcorn maker.  Homemade popcorn is such a low kilojoule food and kids just love it!  If you don't have a popcorn maker, you can still DIY without having to buy the pre-packed bags that are full of salt and other additives.

Just take a brown paper lunch bag (available from supermarkets), add 1/4 cup of popcorn, fold over the end a few times and put it in the microwave for around 2 minutes.  You need to experiment with the time a little.  It's closer to 1 min 45 sec when I do it in my microwave.  You can then eat it 'al natural' or add your own flavours and at least control the amount!
