Tthis DIY microwave popcorn trick is perfect for lazy nights at home. Prepare a batch now and then to enjoy a healthy, cheap snack.
Instructables user Hoopajoo had a major issue with store-bought microwave popcorn:
Go to the supermarket and look at the boxes of microwave popping corn. $US1.99 to $US3.00 a box and the odds are you won't find one seasoned to your individual taste. You just have to settle for what they offer.
So he did what any true DIYer would: found a way to make it at home. Now he's shared his recipe with us.
What you'll need:
- 1/4 cup of popping corn (Generally $US0.99 for a pound bag. This is enough to make at least 50 bags of microwave corn.)
- 1 Teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- To taste - popcorn salt (It has finer granules than table salt with the same taste.)
And these tools:
- A stapler
- A teaspoon
- A measuring cup
- A brown paper bag
- A microwave
We would suggest skipping the stapler and using this trick, though, because somehow we're wary about sticking staples into our microwaves, even if there are no sparks in the video:
Check out the full instructions for this DIY recipe at Instructables, but before you go, tell us: Have you ever made a DIY version of microwave popcorn before? How'd it taste? (And did the staples spark up?) What other snacks do you prefer to make at home?
