I used this recipe in a microwave corn popper I bought from Walmart. It holds up to 12 cups and has a vented lid for popping. Then when it is ready you just take off the lid and enjoy
Homemade Microwave Popcorn
6 -8 cups
1/3 cup popcorn
2-3 tablespoons melted butter
- Pour kernels into a small paper bag (standard lunch size is fine) and fold the top of the bag over twice to close (each fold should be 1/2 inch deep; remember the kernels need room to pop).
- Seal the bag with tape placed 2 to 3 inches apart. (Do not use staples, in a microwave they can be hazardous)
- Place bag in microwave on carousel.
- Cook on high 2-3 minutes, or until the pops are 5 seconds apart
- Mix with butter and salt
